Narrative neck-biter Vampyr has sold almost half a million copies since its June 5th launch.
Life is Strange developer Dontnod launched the supernatural adventure game last month, with only a week of marketing preceding release. On top of passing the 450,000 mark on copies sold, Vampyr also managed to top charts in countries like France, the UK, and Germany.
"We are very proud, because since its launch, our last original creation meets a great craze among players,” said Dontnod CEO Oskar Guilbert, unfortunately, scrambled through Google Translate on ActusNews. “Thanks to our new role as co-producer, we will benefit greatly from this commercial success."
Focus Home Interactive president Cédric Lagarrigue previously told MCV that Vampyre would be “considered a success when around one million copies are sold,” but passing even half a million would be considered profitable.”
The publisher currently has no plans to support Vampyr with DLC. However, Focus haven’t written off a sequel if sales and reaction show interest in the IP. Dontnod is meanwhile looking for more independence as it eyes up an IPO.
