Hellblade Only Needs To Sell 200 – 300,000 Copies Says Ninja Theory

Hellblade, Ninja Theory’s upcoming “independent AAA” game, is being developed on a relatively small budget, and in a recently released development diary, the studio said it only needs to sell 200,000 – 300,000 copies to make its money back.


The idea behind Hellblade is to develop a game with a very specific focus (in this case, combat) and to do it with a small team. The Hellblade team is currently at 12 people, and Ninja Theory are trying not to let that number grow beyond 15 people at the most.
