Aww be nice  :laugh:, I'm glad to know. I'm generally curious how this game will ultimately perform in comparison to ACM.

IMHO the 6 titles heavily discounted kind of puts AFTE pass them. Plus Civilization has a legacy fanbase and there are oddly enough 4 variants of Civilization listed in those 6.

17th on the Steam Top Seller chart if that positioning is correct.

The xbox version is listed as a best seller on Amazon.

Steam alone i had seen 10,000 players of the game online on launch day. Right  now it reads 7,174 in-game.

Aliens dropped to 12th in the U.K. boxed chart after a 77% decline in sales. At least it got the coveted number 1 spot for a week!

EDIT: More specifically, Aliens dropped one spot to number two in the Xbox Series X retail chart in the U.K.:

Number 1 on the retail chart in Australia:

Number 2 in NZ:

Those physical sales #1 and #2 rankings sound nice, but I'm not sure how to read into them to be honest. They're competing with some games a few years shy of a decade old. I wish these charts also reflected digital sales.

Best we can do until we get some news about digital sales!

“ Several games were successfully launched during the quarter: Aliens: Fireteam Elite, which is distributed by Focus Home Interactive in Europe and several territories in Asia, and Insurgency: Sandstorm on PlayStation4 and XboxOne, which already sold close to half a million units; both games are performing well.”

I read the “half a million” units as applicable to Insurgency - but it’s nice to hear the publisher thinks it has performed well.

Yeah, I read this way too.

Several games were successfully launched during the quarter: Aliens: Fireteam Elite, which is distributed by Focus Home Interactive in Europe and several territories in Asia, and Insurgency: Sandstorm on PlayStation4 and XboxOne, which already sold close to half a million units; both games are performing well.

But it's great for the future of Alien video games to hear they consider it performing well so far. Nice find Seattle! Since Focus is a public traded company, we can expect a public statement every quarter, so hopefully we'll get more A:FTE info in their next statement.

I do think a half a million units is a good benchmark for a non AAA game. I felt that way with Illfonic's P:HG too. Of course, it also comes down to how much these companies actually spend cumulatively against how much they sold, but since we usually never see those numbers, I personally run with the 500k success line.
