The Callisto Protocol sales

The Callisto Protocol brought a new flavour of Dead Space-like action to Xbox platforms last month, but so far, the game doesn't appear to be selling quite as well as expected.

Over in South Korea, where the game's publisher hails from, various financial analysts are lowering their initial expectations, with stock prices and sales expectations dropping.

One of those groups, Samsung Securities, had this to say on The Callisto Protocol's sales outlook:

"The company [Krafton] expected cumulative sales of 5 million copies, but considering the current sales ranking, cumulative sales of 2 million copies will not be easy until this year."

Korea Investment & Securities, another of the analytical firms mentioned, also lowered its expectations to 2.1 million copies. Both figures are quite a steep drop from the initial 5 or so million sales expected.

The game's general reception likely hasn't helped in the sales department, despite a heavy marketing push around launch. There was quite a lot of hype behind Striking Distance Studios' debut effort pre-release, but the game didn't quite live up to that hype in the eyes of many, us included.
