We already knew Saints Row IV would sell well in its launch week, but to sell over 1 million copies, counting out Australia, is f*cking astronomical in the game industry. According to publisher Deep Silver, sale levels of this magnitude, meaning the size of ’s balls, is a “smashing commercial success,” GameSpot reported.
We are incredibly happy of the reception for Saints Row IV as a critical and now a commercial success,” said Deep Silver parent company Koch Media CEO Klemens Kundratitz. “The development team at Volition is second-to-none as a driving creative force in the entertainment industry and we are very proud to have them as part of the Deep Silver family.
In addition, Deep Silver said that the PC version of Saints Row IV is the top seller, which sold three times more than the initial sales of Saints Row: The Third on the PC.
Although, Saints Row IV has been refused twice in Australia, a softcore version of the game is already in the works, and is expected to be out in September. The Saints Row IV “Presidential” and “Grass Roots” DLC is also now available.
