Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Sea of Thieves is Microsoft's fastest selling first party new IP of this generation.

Congratulations to Rare and Microsoft. 

 

The worldwide excitement for Sea of Thieves has made it the fastest-selling first-party new IP of this generation. Having witnessed more than a million players on launch day, our community continues to grow and now has more than two million players. Alongside this, Sea of Thieves is already the best-selling Microsoft Studios first-party title on Windows 10.

Faster selling than Horizon Zero Dawn? Yeah, I doubt that.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Updated the thread title to be more accurate.

Good numbers (2M Players) now they better start detailing their content road-map.

Well, Pumpkinheads's tweets seem to indicate he's referring only to Xbox, but the text in the OP and linked article are saying it's the fastest selling new IP across all platforms this gen. Wonder which it is?

 

-err. Already clarified.

Horizon (I assuming your talking about zero dawn) sold through 2.6 million in its first 2 weeks. However it has nothing to do with this thread as it seems the OP just mistyped the info and has updated his thread

 

Edit: ops, you're the OP lol. 



However without sales numbers this doesn't pain an accurate picture of the terms of success. Quantum break sold poorly, and it has pretty much the exact same PR like this, quantum break is the fastest selling new IP from Microsoft this generation. But the game still underperformed badly.

The 2 million numbers are surely inflated by multiple users, free trials and game pass. So as I said having an accurate idea about sales about this is impossible.



good job! haters gonna keep on hating. nice news overall

On the windows store, sea of thieves is already the highest selling Microsoft published game ever. Already ahead of forza horizon 3, gears 4, etc.

edit: also, for anyone wondering, "fastest selling" doesn't take gamepass into account,



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
