DOOM Eternal Earned Itself £450 Million In The First 9 Months
To put that title into perspective, When Doom was released back in May 2016, it only reached 957 000 during its first month. Doom Eternal managed to do £450 million in just under a year.
How Do We Know This?
This information comes from an article at Multiplayer First, which was spotted the figures via a member of staff from Id Software (Team behind Doom Eternal) on their LinkedIn profile.
The employee lists themselves as a “Monetization Designer” and mentions they worked with a “major focus” on Doom Eternal, which generated more than $450 million in revenue within 9 months.
From the way that it looks, the revenue was accumulated via all sales across all platforms: PC, Xbox, Playstation and Nintendo Switch.
Doom Eternal features a multiplayer component that includes cosmetics, which would usually require an extra buck or two. However, cosmetics are not acquired through micro-transactions- but instead through earning XP each time that you play.
This makes the amount of revenue they raked in even more impressive, (even with their being DLC add-ons). This can only be a good sign for what’s to come in the future of the Doom franchise.
Good News For Microsoft
This will of course will be welcoming news to the heads over at Microsoft, as they acquired ZeniMax Media, the parent company of popular video game publisher Bethesda.
