Nier Automata Has Sold 4 Million, Kingdom Hearts 3 Launch Is Successful
Square Enix has shared a new sales update for their most recent games including Nier Automata, Kingdom Hearts 3, and Left Alive.
Nier Automata was released in March 2017 and has continued to show strong legs. It has now managed to sell more than four million copies worldwide. It received a Game of the Year edition release for the Xbox One and was also re-launched for PC and PS4 with a bundle that included all of the post-release DLC.
Kingdom Hearts 3 shipped five million copies within its debut week and has continued to perform well for Square Enix. They have plans to expand the sales of the game with post-launch DLC, the first of which was just announced by the game director Tetsuya Nomura.
Left Alive is another recent game released by Square Enix that turned out to be disappointing in term of both critical and commercial success. Square Enix is also seeing subscription for games like Final Fantasy XIV remain stable. Octopath Traveler sales remained stable and they have recently announced a PC version of the game.
Lastly, we learn that Square Enix is not expecting any big game releases until the second half of their fiscal year. One of the rumored games that might release during this time is Final Fantasy VII Remake and they just showcased it during State of Play stream held by Sony. It is possible that they will also announce their Avengers project at the upcoming E3 2019.
