In response to the news that Ghost of Tsushima has sold more than 8 million copies, the director of the PlayStation-exclusive Days Gone revealed a sales number for the 2019 game.
Jeff Ross, who directed Days Gone and then left the studio, said on Twitter that Days Gone had sold 8 million copies on console alone when he left Sony. The game has since sold more on PlayStation consoles, plus another 1 million+ on Steam, Ross said.
Ross went on to claim that the local studio management “always made us feel like it was a big disappointment”. Ross said that the press coverage…but no review scores— was a factor. “The press has not helped our cause”, Ross said:.
Ross went on to say that Sony’s management had more faith in Death Stranding than Days Gone. The developer also talked about the development of the game, proverb, “Development was a long slog, but we were a small team learning how to make our first open world game. All things considered, it’s amazing that we finally made it.”
By the time I left Sony, Days Gone had been out for a year and a half (and a month) and sold over 8 million copies. Since then it has sold more, then a million+ on Steam. Local studio management always made us feel like a big disappointment. #disappeared #Play station https://t.co/KMZr2pGe9r
