Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice one the year’s most anticipated titles has sold more than a 100,000 copies on steam. Hellblade released on August 8th,2017. Just ten days ago and the game is getting favorable reviews from critics. It’s a game that tackles mental Illness and portrays it correctly. It’s no surprise that critics are loving it and fans are swallowing Ninja Theory’s latest adventure. What is surprising is the fact the game has sold over one hundred thousand copies.
According to a post on NEO GAF and Steamspy, HellBlade: Senua’s Sacrifice has sold more than a hundred thousand copies in the first ten days of release; beating Batman: Enemy Within which sold a mere 17,000 copies and Lawbreakers which only sold 68,0000 total copies, so far.
Steamspy, also, has some more interesting tidbits about Hellblade, for instance, the average play time for the game is about four hours and around 92,000 people have played it in the last week. It’s fascinating to read the stats about games and who’s playing them. Senua’s Sacrifice has been on my radar for a while and the game is a spiritual successor to Heavenly Sword, which was released on the PS3 back in 2007.
Fans have been hoping for a strong follow-up and it looks like they got their wish from Ninja Theory, if those numbers are to be believed. We can only hope that Hellblade will be successful enough to warrant a sequel in the future or a re-release of Heavenly Sword for the PS4. By my calculations, the profits on the steam version alone are close to $3,000,000. We currently have no information on what the PS4 sales are at the time, but we can hope the sales are more and can be considered profitable for Ninja Theory and the game can near a 300,000 mark by next week.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is available for PC and PlayStation 4.
