Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
Gamespot has recently published a list of the best selling games of 2016, courtesy of The NPD group. The research is based on both online and retail sales for physical video game products and full-game digital downloads from participating publishers (Blizzard is not participating). This list does not cover the whole market (no Steam) so treat these with a grain of salt.
Probably the most surprising thing in the list is the dominance of 1. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. We actually though the game was going to show mediocre results in sales, but the market proved us wrong. The design work in this project is amazing. The other odd thing is that we have Grand Theft Auto V on the 6th position. That’s an incredible achievement for a game, which was released back in 2013.
Best-selling Games of 2016
- Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
- Battlefield 1
- The Division
- NBA 2K17
- Madden NFL 17
