Black Desert Online News - Is 400,000 Units Sold Significant?

Posted by Suzie Ford on Apr 10, 2016  | Comments

The announcement by Daum that Black Desert Online had sold 400,000 copies was quite a surprise. Not because I wasn’t expecting some sort of announcement but because the figure struck me as particularly low. For what could be argued as the last AAA title for some time and one that - seemingly - has been anticipated for an age, it’s odd to think it’s had sales of less than half a million. Considering it launched across America and Europe simultaneously, such figures would send many companies scurrying for cover, especially when the long term expense of massively multiplayer games is well known.
