Stellar Blade Was Surrounded By Controversy Before And After Release

The studio expects sales to increase steadily after the initial release as it looks toward a promising future in AAA gaming.

According to Shift Up, Stellar Blade’s sales have allowed the team to bolster its AAA development efforts further. The financial report also provides hope for a PC version and sequel. While neither is confirmed yet, Shift Up has begun considering both options.

The team is set to expand and begin investing in more projects next year. Moreover, the studio has confirmed Project Codename Witches, a new game that will take up most of its attention moving forward.

Stellar Blade has proven to be quite popular worldwide, but Japanese audiences, in particular, seem to have taken a liking to this release. Data from this market suggests that nearly 100K copies have been sold in Japan alone as physical discs, likely bringing the game closer to the 1 million mark.

While Shift Up has made no such announcements, it is also possible that 1 million sales have already been achieved. Moving forward, the title seems to have enough potential to be converted into a major PlayStation franchise.
