The extra million copies during the last month are a much bigger deal than it might appear. The leaks have affirmed that the title is projected to sell at least 10.5 million units to meet the exposed $315 million budget spent on creating the chef-d’oeuvre. In other words, the devs are closer to breaking even than ever before. The return on investment is 35%, and total profits of $75 million are expected.
Additionally, it sold over 2.5 million copies in just 24 hours after release and became the fastest-selling PlayStation exclusive. We can expect the game to soon churn a plethora of profits for Sony. All in all, other recently leaked details suggest that the entry will get three new free DLCs along with the NG+ mode in the future.
