no. it absolutely did. BUT underperforming ≠ flopping.
Part 2 underperformed by around 5 million
It should have had Ragnarok's performance.
Ragnarok played the story safe and also didn't leak and have a load of false narratives spread all over the internet.. That can't be forgotten.
Personally I don't want any Dev in the future to aim for sales over what they want to write. (Not saying Santa Monica did that btw).
Anyway the game has had great legs and will continue to do so. Also to this point hasn't really been Bundled and only has one SkU which are all very relevant factors.
