Basing these off of Paul Gale's calculations, these could be Dread's final sales figures if they follow these stats.

854k x 3.62 = 3,091,480 units in the US alone.

3,091,480 / .55 = 5,620,873 units worldwide.

If "first month in US" means NPD month, then that's a lot of garbage maths. Dread launched during the first month of the tracking period and that's certainly not the case for all Metroid games.

Dread is definitely on track to match the previous sales ceiling for Metroid games because of its strong launch and the inevitable digital discounts Nintendo's first party games get on Switch, but people shouldn't expect 5m+ based on fundamentally flawed calculations.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
