A lot of us will probably dismiss Sea of Thieves as another insignificant game.. However, I see great potential in the game and I believe it has the potential to sell millions of copies for a few reasons. First of all, Xbox owners are dying to play a new exclusive game and Sea of Thieves is the only game available in the spring. Another reason is Sea of Thieves is extremely unique and gamers love originality.
Therefor, which exclusive game do you think will perform better lifetime? Sea of Thieves or God of War? both games are set to be released in the spring.
1. State of Decay 2 releases on May 22nd, so it's not the only game this spring.
2. Both will be available day one on Game Pass.
Because of this, I think God of War will sell more physical copies (the ones we'll be able to keep track of). That being said, M$ is going to make a pretty penny even before Crackdown 3 releases.
