In all likelihood he is right, that it'll end up between 40 and 50 million. I think most would agree that it'll hit 40 million. It's one of the few games Nintendo pushes bundles for. As for animal crossing that doesn't seem to crazy, the game will most likely be over 30 million by the end of the year, which is just a huge amount to get in such a short period of time. The game has only been out for around 9 months.
Those numbers are ridiculous for ps4 exclusives. No way will spider man sell another 10 million on ps4, no way will TLOU make it to 25 million on ps4. TLOU 2 definitely won't get 25 million on ps4 alone. The other 2 are probably doubtful but might be possible.
Well, I do think 40+ Million is possible for both, but that would require some extreme circumstances, like Switch continuing to sell software at unprecedented rates in 2021, 2022, and beyond, no MK9, a dry spell in terms of releases, etc.
If you expect another 20+ Million for AC, why wouldn't BoTW2 or Mario, franchises that have traditionally outsold the AC franchise, not outsell it in its first year?Last edited by PotentHerbs - on 09 December 2020
