It’ll be the best-selling full-priced game since Overwatch, they say. Over all platforms, they are predicting that it’ll sell up to five million in its first three months, meaning hungry PC players will make up over half the game’s digital audience.
The forecast was created by looking at the first game’s sales and comparing it to other games released in the same period. It also takes into account the launch date, its Battle.net release, and other factors.
“As the buzz around specific titles continues to grow within the digital gaming industry as a whole, the forecaster offers a unique starting point for those thinking about sales scenarios,” Sam Barberie, vice president of product and business development at SuperData Research, says. “By pairing this with the SuperData Arcade, the digital gaming industry can now have a clearer picture of what drives sales success and how their future releases could gain an advantage.”
These forecasts will be changing monthly, however, reacting to announcements and trailer releases. It should provide an accurate ballpark figure, though.
