Polish developers Bloober Team have released a statement that their most recent realm-bending horror role-playing game, The Medium, has recouped development and marketing costs in less than a week of the game being released. This report comes from the Polish publication Money.pl, which was noticed by Gamespot.
With the game already recouping development and marketing costs, any additional revenue the game makes will theoretically be profit. Of course, money will be put back into the game for further development. Either way, this is a massive win for Bloober Team, and it is games like these that help game development studios to grow and produce even stronger games!
The fact that the game has only been released on the Xbox Series X|S and PC makes this accomplishment even more exciting. The Xbox Series X|S has a fraction of the player base compared to the full Xbox Ecosystem, including the Xbox One. Recouping all costs sunk into the game before the end of the first week, even with a limited platform release, is an exciting accomplishment, and I cannot wait to see what game Bloober Team will release next!
