In the earnings call for the last business quarter, those responsible for publisher Take-Two announced that the obsidian role-playing game The Outer Worlds has already sold two million copies on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4. In addition, GTA V reached the next remarkable milestone and passed the 120 million units sold mark.
In times when far too many games were launched with a long-term "Games as a Service" plan or unnecessarily inflated multiplayer modes The Outer Worlds (buy now for € 34.99) a welcome exception in October 2019. The role-playing game from Obsidian Entertainment (Fallout: News Vegas, Pillars of Eternity) relies on an old-school story experience that can be played through in a manageable amount of time and behind which you can check with a clear conscience.
And the good news for all fans of this concept is: The Outer Worlds is successful! According to the Earnings Call for Take-Two's last business quarter (via GameSpot) the RPG is said to have already sold two million copies on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4. And the number will surely increase when the planned Nintendo Switch port has appeared (but the release will be postponed due to the corona virus, since the port is being developed in studios in China). So you can assume that this was not Obsidian's last role-playing game.
However, a milestone that GTA V recently completed is also noteworthy: Over 120 million units of the last part of the "Grand Theft Auto" series are said to have sold. That makes an increase of 20 million units in 2019 alone. And since Red Dead Redemption 2 (29 million), NBA2K20 (more than eight million times) and Borderlands 3 (also more than eight million times, franchise record) are right have sold well, Take-Two looks back with satisfaction over the past few months.
