Rise for the Tomb Raider PC sells 3x more than Xbox in the first month

 

The PC Version of Rise of the Tomb Raider sold over 3x as many copies as the Xbox One version during its first month of sale digitally, showing the sheer demand that there is on the PC platform for the title. 

These numbers may not consider physical copies of the game on the PC and Xbox One, but it does show that there is a huge demand for games on PC and that PC gamers were willing to wait and purchase the game on their platform of choice. 

Below is some comments from SUPERDATA;

  As one of Square Enix’s most visible franchises, the Tomb Raider franchise performed in January, receiving both strong industry recognition and benefiting from a seasonal lull of triple A games. Initial sales numbers on digital console for Rise of the Tomb Raider were soft, due to sharing its release date with Fallout 4 and its exclusivity to Xbox One. The game sold almost three times as many units on PC than it did on console during its first month

We already know that the Xbox One version of Rise of the Tomb Raider has sold over 1 million copies on the Xbox One, so hopefully Square Enix will be able to give us accurate data for the PC version in order to compare, as digital sales are expected to account for less than half of the sales of the game Xbox One.

Knowing Sqaure Enix they will call it a failure and make some studio cuts... They did that before, can't remember which game but they sold think it was 5 or 6 million copies(might have been a FF title) and they said it failed.. when in reality that's a very large success.

Still it's good to see TR doing good, despite not having interests in it. It just shows that PC gamers value good games and will buy them when they can and not pirate them(as much that is). Hopefully it encourages more games to come out on all platforms.Quote

I've been looking forward to this one. Bought Arkham Knight late so I've been playing it lately but I'll be getting this one soon. Really glad to hear this news too. Any time something like this happens to let the developers know we're still here is a good thing.Quote
