Crysis Sold 3+ Million!

Forums - PC Discussion - Crysis Sold 3+ Million!

Yeah! I've ALWAYS said that Crysis would reach 3 million units sold, but a lot of people here in the forums were too ignorant to believe it would be possible.

Although this is a forum about sales, many users simply don't understand how PC Game sales work!

Hell, Crysis even outsold Far Cry 1! I'm hoping it will now push for 4 million units. Here are the numbers released:

Crysis -- 3 Millions

Crysis Warhead -- 1.5 Millions

Far Cry -- 2.5 Millions

Crysis even exceeded my expectations! I was hoping it would sell 3 millions lifetime, but now it could very well reach 4 millions, if not even more!

EDIT: Here's also another important fact: the PDF's date is from May 2010, over 6 months ago. That means that there is still 6 months worth of sales to add to those figures, and the Crysis Steam sale last month was a HUGE success.

Link where anyone stated that it wont do 3 million? Hell, IIRC there was an article like a year ago that it passed 2 million ( Wikipedia maybe? I dunno).

PC games, especiallyif you add retail and DL numbers, can leg out to some beautyfull ammounts Congrats Crysis. Some people hate the game, but they probably never played it, just open their filthy mouths to bash the game...

The link is in the OP already.

EDIT: Sorry, I misunderstood. No, there were a lot of members in the forum that said that Crysis was a flop, and that it would never be a multi-million seller and all that crap. Of course they were all wrong, and I was right.

I can't find the posts now, but I think I still remember a couple of names, although there's no need to say who.



But PC gaming is dead...

and how do PC game sales work ?

Far Cry has been at 2 million for ages. Same for Crysis. Those are just normal legs for million selling games. Nothing spectacular.



PC gaming doom postponed another year confirmed?



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Not bad for a game whose sequel is to be released on consoles because of piracy.

Far Cry just topped out at 2.5 million. It might still reach 3 million, but not more than that. Almost no one wants to buy it anymore, since it's only advantage (the graphics) is severely outdated.

Crysis on the other hand, is a much more recent and much better game. It still has a few years left of decent sales. I can see it reach 4 or 5 million. It will go through several Steam sales, and Crysis 2's release will help some, then bundles with Crysis Crysis 2, etc...

Most console games sell most of their sales in the first month, while PC games tend to keep selling for years and years, with many PC games selling less than 10% of it's lifetime sale in the first months.

Starcraft 1, for example, sold only 1.5 million in the first year, then sold an extra 11 millions the following years. Starcraft 1 probably sold less than 5% of it's lifetime sales in the first month.

Interesing, because last I heard, the consoles are also filled with piracy. Also, I didn't see anyone say they're going multiplatform with Crysis 2 because of piracy, so could you please post the source of your argument?
