My Guess 1 Million by the years end

A shame it's only 500k honestly, but if the 300k announcement was over a month ago then it's a really good sign for the game's legs.

But you have to understand how this looks comparatively to the rest of the series. This is a fantastic jump for the series' sales since Xrd Revelator. GG is legit hitting that "fighting mainstream" level of awareness and could have ripple effects for normalizing rollback netcode.

I genuinely don't know how much previous games sold, I assumed Xrd might've broken a million.

I see. Well, our info is still quite limited but I think VGChartz is a decent indicator of previous success:

I can't remember what -Sign- and -Revelator- PC numbers were touted, but it's harder to gauge the financial success there when considering how many were likely picked up from deep sales. I'm 100% confident Arc feels like they've breached a new popularity threshold for the series, especially so for its first month.

There's a video from Maximilian Dood where he mentions the developers commemorated that one of the previous games had sold 90,000 after a few quarters (!). So yeah, this is kind of new for the series.

A shame they decided to advertise this one instead of the last one which everyone liked better.

This sounds like a pretty selective 'everyone'.
