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. 

So how do you feel about SoT now, 2 months after launch, regardless of sales numbers?

Do you think it still has long term potential or have you lost interest in it and its potential or do you think Microsoft dropped the ball on this new IP?

Hopefully God of War. Not played SoT but it's fairly obvious God of War is the better game, so it deserves the better sales.

I do am no fortune teller so I cannot tell you, this year GOW will clearly sell more, will it outsell SOT 5 years down the road? I have no idea. 

Comparing a game for today to a service based game design around tomorrow? I do not no. You have my answer for 2018. I don't like assuming and betting on things I have no control on. So ill play it safe.

One of the pillars of this site is making predictions.

I don't predict apples to oranges comparisons. Maybe if the games were more similar to each other and focused on similar audiences. Both games couldn't be any more different from each others. Like comparing a Boat to a Car.



People are still in doubt??? After massive amount of 10/10 and the epic 3 days sales; it is a no brainier right now that GOW will sell better.... A LOT BETTER.

This thread is talking about who will sell the most, that means LT. It is a forecast, projection, not a look at know numbers. What is the point of discussing hard data?

Yes :p

No one will be playing Sea of Theives 5 years from now imo.

"Sea of Thieves has early success but with a caveat. Sea of Thieves had 1.7 million monthly active users on console and 283,000 on PC during its launch month. However – more than half of these users obtained the game through the limited free trial offered as part of Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass. This leaves some unanswered questions concerning the long-term success of the title." - SuperData

Actual sold copies of game (not gamepass ) = ~900k-1m  in the first month.  (God of War did 3.1m+ in 3days)

And look at the player base... its shrunk to near nothing already.
It has 540 viewers on Twitch atm.   (God of War a "one and done" game has like 5k viewers atm)

Intrest in the game has dropped like a rock.

If you don't want to make predictions for the game there is no reason to enter a thread that is specifically asking who will sell more (and that isn't a 2018 question).

We are not comparing technical or even subjective opinions. It is a simple who will sell more. So if you want to compare let's say Airbus 380 sales versus Mustang sales and ask who will sell more in any given year or lifetime I would safely predict Mustang will sell more.

SoT will make a miracle and go from 1M first month to 10M LT. Believe.

What's wrong with you guys, stop fueling this stupid pointless thread.

What's next will God of War outsell Red Dead Redemption 2????

No one is making you come here



I don't get people who say you can't compare these games.

You sit in a boat and go to islands to get loot. They are practically the same.



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

Did you even read the title and the thread? I don't recall seeing LT sales in the message, just which will sell more. So I predicted which will sell more in 2018. Which is what I did. Don't like it than move on.
