Digital Bros made $27.6m from Death Stranding PC

Italian games firm Digital Bros has reported gross revenue of €23.2 million ($27.6 million) from the PC version of Death Stranding.

This figure has emerged as part of the company's annual financial report – as spotted by Twitter user DomsPlaying – and is 31 per cent of Digital Bros' total premium games gross revenue for the year ending December 31st, 2020. Overall, the firm saw a 28.8 per cent increase in gross revenue for this arm of the business compared to 2019.

Death Stranding originally launched for the PlayStation 4 at the end of 2019 but came to PC in July via Digital Bros' 505 Games. The title debuted at No.1 on Steam when it was released.

Meanwhile, Control continued to be a strong earner for Digital Bros, bringing in €16 million ($19 million) in revenue for the period. That's a 32.9 per cent decrease year-on-year, bolstered by the game's launch on Steam in August 2020 following the title being exclusive to the Epic Games Store on its initial release in 2019.

According to developer Remedy, Control has shifted two million copies, as of the end of 2020.
