Rise of the Tomb Raider, XCOM 2 & Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Sell Well On The PC

Rise of the Tomb Raider, XCOM 2 and Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen have been recently released on the PC and apparently they sell well on our platform. Of course this does not surprise us, however it’s good witnessing and reporting such a thing.

According to Capcom, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is its fastest selling PC game to date. Not only that, but the game is also one of the publisher’s Top Three best-selling PC releases.

As Capcom told MCVUK:

“We are extremely pleased with the performance of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen. It is our fastest-selling PC title to date, thanks to an audience eagerly waiting for it, and us delivering to the level of quality gamers were expecting.”

Rise of the Tomb Raider, on the other hand, has already sold 400K copies on Steam (according to SteamSpy). For comparison purposes, the game sold 330K on Microsoft’s consoles in its first week; a figure close to the actual sales of the game on the PC in its first week.

Last but not least, XCOM 2, a PC exclusive title, has sold around 600K copies in less than a week, proving that PC exclusives can be profitable. According to various reports, XCOM 2 is plagued by some performance issues, so it will be interesting to see whether this will impact the game’s sales, and whether Firaxis will release a performance patch for its title.
