Plague Tale Requiem: After Critical Success, Commercial Success? Here are the first figures!

Released on October 18, A Plague Tale Requiem was a slap in the face for some, garnering excellent ratings from many outlets. Of course, we expected the sales figures: they have just been revealed.

A story with a plaque

In 2019, Asobo caused a surprise with A Plague Tale Innocence: for the Bordeaux studio, it was their second original game, a decade after Fuel… and it was certainly a success. Amicia and Hugo’s first adventure received good reviews and sold a million and a half copies a month after its release.

Three years later, the developers were at it again with a sequel called Requiem: bigger, more ambitious, darker, and more mature, the studio also increased its staff to achieve its ambitions. A risky bet, of course, but one that has paid off since We have just learned that the emblematic milestone of one million players has already been surpassed, two weeks and two days after its arrival on the market.

Note that we are talking about “players”, not “sales”.This information is important and explains why the game is available from its launch on the Xbox Game Pass, making it accessible to many subscribers who don’t need to purchase it to play it.

Requiem to the hit machine

This growth, much faster than that of its predecessor, is accompanied by rave reviews from the press. Yesterday we shared with you a new trailer dedicated entirely to good ratings. Only in our columns, the title received a good 18/20 while the Focus Entertainment opus is at 83% on Metacritic, for 64 critics.

The contract seems to have been fulfilled for Asobo, which has garnered success after success, as it also produced the excellent Microsoft Flight Simulator in a completely different style. Nothing to do with it, we know, but the company never does things by halves and we can only encourage it to continue along these lines.
