The shooter’s Steam version has also sold quite well in China.
Metro Exodus ruffled more than a few feathers when, weeks before its Steam launch in February last year, publishers Deep Silver confirmed that the game would be exclusive to the Epic Games Store. That exclusivity, however, recently ended, and we reported yesterday that the game had, according to Deep Silver parent company Embracer Group, performed quite well on Steam at launch.
During the company’s recent earnings call, CEO Lars Wingefors also provided some sales figures, discovered by PC Gamer. Apparently, within just five days of its Steam launch, 4A Games’ first person shooter has already sold over 200,000 copies on Valve’s digital storefront, and seems to be performing surprisingly well in China.
“I was happy to see it performing well, selling about 200,000 copies already,” said Wingefors, “and it was surprising to see one big country in Asia, the biggest country, buying the product.”
Metro Exodus also sold quite well on the Epic Games Store at launch last year, in spite of sparking the ire of many. Its second (and final) DLC, Sam’s Story, recently came out- read our review for it through here.
