Well that should be well enough to keep the series going at least!

So it should be safe to say it did at least 500K with PC and digital combined first week. Those are pretty good numbers. Game should be able to reach around 2 million LT easily. Hopefully that's enough to secure a sequel and the franchise lives on.

nice, it will probably have more legs than V since it seems to be much better if the next 2-3 weeks are good, we can say the soul is still burning :D
