So they have gone from rebooting the franchise to reach a wider audience (throwing out an unofficial wish of 4~5 millions), to expecting 2 millions sales by march 31, to 1.2 millions shipped copies by march 31.
There's still people convinced that it's selling well?
Doesn't matter. Anyone and everyone who'd placed money into the Devil May Cry HD collection had already contributed to DmC's sequel.
Thinking a DMC 5 is going to rack in millions of sales is foolishness in this economy. Especially when first person shooters are the most popular of games.
What will people say about Bayonetta 2's sales? Did anyone notice how Sega dropped Platinum Games in the dirt when the game sold millions? Why? Because games like that aren't marketable in this economy. EXCEPT! God of War.
