Originally released on PS4 in 2019, Death Stranding then arrived on PC, much to the delight of those waiting for it. On this medium, the title was edited by 505 Games, which obviously had a hollow nose in recovering the management of this port.
Over the period from June to December 2020, Death Stranding, released on July 14, grossed 23 million euros for 505 Games, figure that was confirmed by Digital Bros., parent company of the publisher. This total takes into account the Steam and Epic Games Store versions, but obviously ignores PS4 sales. The title of Kojima Productions is thus close to Control and the 23.9 million euros generated between August and December 2019. However, the title of Remedy encompassed sales across all mediums. As of December 31, 2020, Control had generated 84 million euros, a very high figure that is not currently targeting Death Stranding, whose goal is to bring in 50 million euros on PC.
The 505 Games financial report obviously mentions other productions, including Assetto Corsa, which reported nearly 9 million over the same period, Ghostrunner and its 6.9 million, without forgetting Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, which has grossed 37 million since its release according to our colleagues from Gamekult. Remember that following the good results of the game, 505 Games has decided to buy the Ghostrunner license for the sum of 5 million dollars. Over the entire second half of 2020, 505 Games announces a net profit of 15.8 million for a turnover of 80 million euros. Thus, it emerges from this financial report that Death Stranding was a real powerhouse for the publisher, who surely expected no less.
