I'm sure the game will sell in the millions. What surprises me is that Days Gone had a bigger launch. When it comes to new IPs I wonder where Astral Chain ranked. That would be an interesting statistic to see overall.

Uh, I guess Days Gone as mentioned in the article... But imo Death Stranding got way more public attention before launch than Days Gone...

But I mean what did it outsell? If it was the 2nd best selling PS4 exclusive of the year but there only were 2 PS4 exclusives... that doesn't really say much or sound that great.

Well Medievil, Concrete Genie, Days Gone come to mind, but I can't think of anything else

The game still did very strong numbers, so I would not call this a tragedy :-)

For a new IP it is selling decently well, plus there are reports of shortages at retail.

Well in fairness Call of Duty is on several platforms while Death Stranding is only on one at the moment, so I'd say Death Stranding did well to hit number 2, like how Luigi's Mansion III did.
