Black Myth: Wukong Deluxe & Collector’s Editions Sold Out Amid High Demand

The Deluxe and Collector’s editions of Game Science’s upcoming action role-playing game, Black Myth: Wukong, have sold out amid high demand.

Daniel Ahmad, Director of Research and Insights at Niko Partners, has shared that demand for Black Myth: Wukong has been extremely high in China since pre-orders went live on June 7, 2024. He mentioned that the standard edition ranked #1 in the best seller charts on Steam in China based on revenue for the week ending June 11, 2024. According to him, the high amount of pre-orders in China also led to it becoming the #1 best seller globally on Steam, despite only ranking at #42 in the US charts and lower in other prominent markets.

Ahmad further mentioned that the first round of physical pre-orders for the Deluxe and Collectors edition of Black Myth: Wukong went live on June 10, 2024, and sold out within a matter of seconds. The Deluxe edition, which costs around $110, was limited to 20,000 units and the collectors edition, which costs around $275 was limited to 10,000 units. He revealed that more than 700,000 people registered interest in buying the game via e-commerce platform JD.

The game analyst shared that the second round of physical pre-orders went live on June 17, 2024, and sold out. This round also resulted in more than 700,000 people registering interest in buying the game via JD. He mentioned that, due to the high demand and limited supply, the game is already receiving resale listings on third party websites that are up to 10 times the retail price in some cases.

It was recently revealed via the official pre-order FAQ for Black Myth: Wukong that physical copies of the game will come with an activation code for the digital version instead of offering a standard disc. This is the first time Game Science is releasing a console game globally, and it is currently facing limitations in offline resources required for the import, export, transportation, distribution, and sales of physical discs.
