Stellar Balde, a AAA PS5 exclusive from Shift Up, was released in late April.

While the game was limited to just the PS5 console, it managed to beat various multiplatform titles. Interestingly, two spots in the top three games were taken up by PlayStation releases, with Helldivers 2 continuing to perform well.

While Shift Up has not shared a sales update, the game seems to have sold incredibly well. Following this release, discussions about a sequel are underway, and the studio is even considering a PC port.

One month after launch, Stellar Blade is also receiving plenty of additional content. A photo mode is in the works, and the team has even added various new outfits after the censorship controversy at release.

Stellar Blade’s journey has just begun. With a potential PC release on the horizon and the incoming updates, this franchise is just getting started. Shift Up has also begun work on various other projects, but the studio is likely to prioritize this IP after the recent success.
