2 million at this point would be healthy for a flagship launch title based on the now popular as fuck Souls franchise. Bloodborne sold over a million in a month and the Souls franchise was even less popular then, and Bloodborne didn't even have the "Souls" name. Granted it was a couple years into the PS4's life, but being a launch title is actually significantly beneficial to a games sales and Demon's Souls should have been the de facto game to purchase with a PS5. We've seen a lot of killer app launch titles with other consoles do much better tbh.What numbers do you think Sony was expecting?
Those claiming Souls is still a niche franchise and Sony had modest expectations for Demon's.
