Saints Row Expected To Break Even If It Can Sell Two Million Copies
The Saints Row remake is expected to break even if it can sell around two million copies, based on the latest report.
According to ABG Sundal Collier, Saints Row is likely to do alright financially, and it is currently grossing well on PlayStation and Xbox. As of September 5, 2022, more than a week after release, it remains in the top 3 sales rankings on both consoles, which is above expectations, given the lukewarm reception from critics.
ABG Sundal Collier estimates that Saints Row needs around two million copies sold during the current fiscal year in order to break even. Given that the game is well-marketed, has relatively low competition on the market right now, and that the IP is strong, the corporate advisory company believes that there are good prospects for at least two million copies. It is expected that the game will sell well above what Tiny Tina did in its first three months, which was around USD 125 Million.
Saints Row is set in the fictional city of Santo Ileso, which is based somewhat on Las Vegas, Nevada, and is situated in the American southwest. Three criminal gangs rule Santo Ileso: the Idols, an anarchist gang that targets nightclubs and nightlife; Los Panteros, a tough car and fitness-oriented gang; and Marshall Defense Industries, an international private military company with a Santo Ileso base that is renowned for its cutting-edge high-tech weaponry.
The player character, “The Boss,” is a former employee of Marshall Defense Industries. He forms a new gang out of these gangs’ disgruntled members in order to usurp control over them. The fifth entry in the series was released on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Google Stadia on August 23, 2022.
Saints Row can be played in co-op, but the requirements for players to join their friends online can be rather confusing. If you’re looking to team up with a friend on your adventure, follow the link here.
