The game has a little bit of hype on the forums but not extending further than that.
It has a lot more hype outside of forums than in them. Though this (forum hype) is growing due to increasingly positive impressions of new demo and final game.
I predicted around 750k FW some time ago and i'm keeping that prediction, but I'd love to see it do 1M. This game is TLOU-tier and would deserve it.
