Far Cry New Dawn topped the UK chart this week, but its launch week sales were a far cry (sorry) from those of its predecessors.New Dawn's sales were just...
haven't played either
The two female villains in New Dawn are about as threatening and menacing as a mouse with a toothpick sword. It's all part of the feminist nonsense "women can do whatever men can do" bullshit that is permeating our culture.
I find it funny personally, the amount of Women I've seen punch a bloke in the face then immediately get floored is priceless. They only want equality in certain areas XD Tough luck, equality doesn't mean cherry picking.
god damn. you are a legend.
We are looking at an industry collapse unfold before our very eyes. Ubisofts wokeness along with Far Cry fatigue and the "more of the same" scenario are but some of the reasons for this. Anthem is also going to perform poorly and Crackdown 3 could not even "crack" the top ten. Gamers are finally talking with their wallets.........sort of.
Most Crackdown players are playing it through Game Pass.
Not sure why you’re getting disagreed with... Oh wait, it’s N4G.
Of course they are, why would anyone buy it?
@ultranova I imagine most MS exclusives will see less sales since game pass offers the games day one. I play Forza but didn't purchase it, nor would I have spent any money on it, so this is a big plus for them. The only game I would probably purchase is halo and gears, since they have a major online component, and I may one day decide to cancel my gamepass sub. But let's say fable comes out on game pass that's a no brainer
Far Cry 5 just one year ago sold $310m in its early launch days. Franchise best, and only behind The Division for Ubisoft's entire history. The Division 2 is seeing 6x higher preorders on PC than the original game. Assassin's Creed Odyssey outsold Origins at launch, which itself had double the launch sales of Syndicate. Crackdown 3 is the terrible sequel to the very-average Crackdown 2, which only existed because Crackdown 1 sold well for basically being a fun free game alongside the Halo 3 Beta. Anthem I'll give to you, that sucks for no other reason than it just going in a wrong direction.
Dont ya know Taco in my post I am only talking about Far cry, right? Cherry picking is real.
Yeah, and I'm pointing out how it's delusional to suggest there's any industry collapse through your cherry picking of (1) a spin-off no one asked for that just so happens to follow immediately after one of Ubisoft's most successful titles ever, and (2) your references of other poor-reviewed titles that function as GaaS
Far cry 5 was one of the top selling games of 2018....
Ummm... Im talking about Far cry new dawn.
Don't ya know, spice? After a successful 2018 in every way, one sales report on a not-asked-for Spin Off is enough to declare total industry collapse.
You are declaring wokeness and industry collapse from a Far cry expansion lol. I'm really not sure what you're getting at.
I'll help translate, he's upset because there are black people in the artwork.
yep another person confirmed that they are calling it woke because there are pink black girls in this game.
Yes lol because Far cry lol is the only game I am referring to lol that is performing poorly lol and pointed out its wokeness lol as the only reason its tanking lol. I can understand why you dont get what I am saying, that usually happens when you dont read someone's post properly.
if, by "talking with their wallets", they don't want the same game reskinned over and over - yea, i agree. i don't believe this signals an "industry collapse" though.
Its happened before its bound to happen again.
"wokeness"...Please stop with this unbelievably ignorant term.
Primal was something new and fresh, this new dawn is not that.
I would like to try out Primal soon, when the price drops lower I mean.
I dont doubt that it sold less, but physical sales are no longer as important in a market that is increasingly digital.
You can't use that excuse when a game sells lower than expected because just last year FC5 physical sales were just fine Physical sales still make up for huge portion of game sales. No doubt moving forward digital will become bigger but physical will always have its own space
Yep. Physical sales are still the majority on consoles.
Physical sales are still indicative that digital sales are behind as well. Market is still largely physical how are sales no longer important
Latest estimate by EA put digital sales at about 39% yet some people act like digital is 95%
we'll find out if you're right when ps5 and nextbox come - if what you say is accurate, they won't even offer physical sales - correct? btw - i don't agree with you. internet speeds are not universally fast enough everywhere for digital to be the norm.
Time to reinvent yourself then!
my thoughts as well. Like they did with AC take a break, come back super strong
It literally came out less than a year after FarCry 5... Primal at least came out a year and a half after FarCry 4... Like why didn't they just release it as DLC? Oh right... Money
DLC would have meant even less sales because it would require that you own Far Cry 5.
I mean I understand why they didn't do it like that.
But why would you want it released as DLC? What's the benefit of it being tied to a more expensive game?
It was a cheap cash in. Everything about this game is mediocre. It literally looks like Rage 2 just no where near as good.
I'm trying to complete farcry 3 on pc. The game doesn't seem to end
It looks garbage
Get woke, go broke.
what's "woke" about this game?
Pink black "bad girl" protagonists.
is that more or less woke than a white guy who is a badass?
The annual release crap just need to end
How much time do they think we have? I would like to play it eventually, but chill out, I just recently played Far Cry 3 and had a blast. I still have to play Far Cry 4, Far Cry Primal and Far Cry 5.
this game was FC5 DLC, but they decided to milk the customers. they already got more than enough and deserved.
I don't understand. If it was released as DLC it would still be sold for money. Releasing it as a standalone means they get to sell it to people that didn't buy Far Cry 5
there are plenty of stand alone DLC.
They didn't market this game for crap. I had no idea it even came out. Apex stealing so much attention likely hurts, too. And on top of all that I think people are just bored of Far Cry in general. The entire genre is kinda stale.
Thats kinda too bad. I wrote the game off before playing it, and decided to just give it a try. Ended up really enjoying it. Very good game that took me by surprise! I prefer it to far cry 5 to tell you the truth.
Far Cry 5 was my first Far Cry game that I ever played & I enjoyed it immensely. I bought FC:ND & it's basically a continuation of 5 & I'm enjoying it as well.
Why when they see both the positive sales and reception response to taking their time with AC have they decided to start churning out Far Cry games completely deluding the series is beyond me. Franchise fatigue compounded with lack of new ideas due to quick turnaround times is a great way to ruin a franchise.
Looks like this game should have been put on gamepass.
Too many other games have come out from RE 2, KH 3 and some that are still coming out FC New Dawn is on my list when I get around to it or maybe once it goes on sale.
Wow it's almost like making the same game over and over again will cause it to fail.
