Former Epic lead game designer Cliff Bleszinski, has stated on Twitter that a new IP introduced at E3 this year need 10 million to break even. Get the full quote below. 

Here is what Cliffy B had to say on Twitter:

“At e3 I overheard that a certain AAA new IP needs to sell 10 million copies…to break even. No I’m not saying which one. You can guess. ”

Meanwhile, Nintendo says Fire Emblem on Wii U would need 700K to be worthwhile. And people say Nintendo is ‘out of touch’ with the gaming industry?

Any guesses on new IP guys?
