Embracer Group in its latest earnings report for the quarter ending March 2024 revealed Alone in the Dark and Outcast: A New Beginning both "performed below management expectations."

"In Q4, results were also impacted by a softer-than-expected performance for the two titles Alone in the Dark and Outcast: A New Beginning, developed and published by THQ Nordic," reads the report.

The report added, "Tomb Raider I-III Remastered was positively received and performed above management expectations. Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection saw negative reviews from users, but performed in line with management expectations. SOUTH PARK: SNOW DAY! saw a mixed reception from critics and users but delivered within expectations.

"Alone in the Dark and Outcast: A New Beginning both saw a positive reception from users, but a mixed reception from critics and ultimately performed below management expectations. Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor, developed by Funday Games and published by Ghost Ship Games (Coffee Stain), launched to great reception and outperformed management expectations.

"Lightyear Frontier, developed and published by FRAME BREAK (Amplifier), saw a positive reception and performed well-in-line with management expectations."

Embracer Group for the quarter reported net sales fell five percent to SEK 8,875 ($825.78 million USD)

That genuinely sucks. I can't speak for Outcast (heard it was decent fun), but I'd say survival-horror fans would get some enjoyment out of Alone in the Dark. Easy pick-up should you find a modest sale during the summer.

If they gonna do games that do mediocre on sales (im not saying theyre bad), why they wont try Legacy of Kain series (remakes, continuation or remasters) and try their luck
