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.
I just get the feeling that the casual/kinda-hardcore gamer do not know about the game and the hardcore gamers like you and I are excited for the game but also suspicious and reviews will probably not be in it favour. I'm getting the game because I like the concept and looks good enough for my purchase but not sure that it will break 1.5M lifetime
