The Order 1886

I think it’s safe to say that the road to launch for The Order: 1886 hasn’t been exactly smooth. The game is already facing severe criticism regarding its gameplay length. Regardless of all the controversies, Research Analyst at Wedbush Securities, Michael Pachter believes that the game will sell in millions just due to the fact that Sony’s PlayStation 4 is doing well which will automatically result into higher attach-rate for Ready At Dawn’s console exclusive.

“It’s a really good exclusive title and I think it attaches at a pretty high rate to the install base so probably 3.5 to 4 million of the install base, and then I think it will probably attract another 1 to 2 million to buy a PlayStation 4 in the next few months. So I would imagine it would be 5 million through the year’s end and it’s great,” Pachter said in an interview with GamingBolt.

Pachter is confident that Sony will keep on selling PS4s and if they bundle it up with the console, The Order: 1886 may even sell close to 10-12 million copies. “[Sony] They are going to keep selling PS4s so the trick is that this title is coming out early in the year but it’s going to sell really well in the Fall and it will probably be $40 during Holidays and if they bundle it with the PlayStation 4 which is how they will; I think the February launch is planned in such way that come Black Friday and they could give you The Order for free if you buy the PS4. So could end up selling 10-12 million because they can give away that many copies. But it’s going to do well.”

He further states that the game will receive a positive critical reception and praised Sony for consistently delivering deep storylines in their exclusives. “I think it’s going to receive good reviews. I think it’s a very interesting game and I like the alternate reality and retro setting. I was a bit skeptic on Red Dead Redemption because it had this western theme and until Red Dead, westerns themes hadn’t worked but it had a great story and it did really well. The Order is not quite a western but a Victorian but it’s the same idea with old weapons but the alternate reality makes it cool. The game has a great story and they have this order that projects societies and it could do super well. I think Sony has consistently come up with really interesting storylines in their exclusives.”

Stay tuned for our full interview with Pachter in the coming days. The Order: 1886 comes out this week exclusively on the PlayStation 4.

    i’m actually gonna doubt this. Id say 6 million at the most.

    • Starman

      Because you’re in denial , and delusional , the game is 5 hrs crappy gameplay … half of the 5 hrs is QTE and cinematic movies …. Shall I go on ??? Only a fanboy would think like that . Stop with the save the Playstation crap bro … you’re looking really suspect.

      PS: It wont break 400,000….lol

    • TheAdjustmentBureau

      Dude stop talking, you look like such a loser and a kid. You’re not worth even talking to.

    • Starman

      Because the truth hurts … and I’m 47 , little boy , loosen up , have fun fan arguments lol It’s video games for Christ sake…Don’t be such a tight WAD….and you gave yourself a thumbs up , really ?

    • TheAdjustmentBureau

      No i didn’t? It’s hard to believe you’re 47. You don’t write correctly. Should have went to college and should’ve moved out of your parents basement. The way you act as a 47 year old is pathetic. That’s coming from a college student.

    • Starman

      You did give a thumbs up to yourself and now you removed it my kids graduated college I dropped out went to ITT TECH and graduated , for one I’m not here to show you all I can use proper grammar or trying to land an interview … what does that have to do with gaming I’m established home owner make great money been gaming before you were born and I sat through the 5 and a half painful full game not demo as you all claim and you’re forced to view cinematic cut scenes you can’t skip through it ….so who is fanboying here…
      The only ppl looking pathetic here are the ones defending every piece of crap Sony releases , THAT DOESN’T WORK the way they claim it should .

      You can attack the way I structure my sentences all you want to but , It wont change the fact that the game sucks just like the rest of their exclusives chew on that ..

    • JimmyNice

      Uncharted 2 can be beaten in under 2.5 hours. The Last of Us can be beaten in under 3.5. Any 10-15 hour normal play time game can be raced through in a couple hours and that’s what this dude did so he could be the 1st to post to youtube.

      How about some actual normal playtimes posted up on Neogaf That are all coming in between 9 and 14 hours? I don’t know why anyone can HATE a video game. I mean either I’m interested… or I don’t care.

      Did someone in a playstation shirt sleep with your wife or something? Why do you feel such and allegiance to a piece of electronics?

      I don’t care if an awesome game is from Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo… if it’s awesome I’m playing it. Chill out and go play.

    • TheAdjustmentBureau

      True gamer right here.^

    • TheAdjustmentBureau

      If you don’t LIKE sony exclusives. Then get out of here. We’re not here to see your opinion….which is crap. If you don’t like it we don’t want to hear it!!!! Lots of people love Playstation’s exclusives. All exclusives on every console is unique. Bashing them only makes you a fanboy.

    • TheAdjustmentBureau

      How does the truth hurt, you probably know nothing about the game and it hasn’t even released yet. You’re narrow minded and a opinionated loser.

    • LordTantamount

      Obvious troll with 12 accounts. Well done, kinda.

    • Anders

      You don’t know if its “crappy gameplay” because you have never tried I and you never will. Those who played the demos enjoyed it. The game actually is more than five hours the YouTube videos are skipped trough speedruns that doesn’t show retries after deaths.

    • Starman

      I watched the full 5 hrs on youtube bro , and you can’t skip cut scenes , the cam is clunky the gameplay is stiff the AI is 90’s tech at best , so not sure where you’re going with this or trying to say for that matter…

    • Anders

      I’m saying that you can’t judge the gameplay without playing it.

      Yes you can’t skip the cut scenes in-game because they are more or less interactive. But the person who edited the video I watched removed gameplay (a bit of running and taking cover) to make it shorter and also didn’t show the player dying (you normally die in games which make the time you play longer).

    • Starman

      I do understand your point of view but, there are more than one video out now .. is all I’m saying .. go check the out , without editing and it went to a little over 6 hrs in that video …

    • imtiaz rahman

      Its already sold 1 million + copies… source given bellow

    • rodney patrick

      You must be hi


    When will someone shut this moron up?

  • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

    So one million for each hour the game lasts then…

    • TheAdjustmentBureau

      This is really off, i said 6 million t the most but I still think thats stretching it.

  • jacksjus

    I’d say 2M copies in the first 3 months is a safe bet. 5M in a year is a lot considering it’s only on one console and its a new IP.

    • TheAdjustmentBureau

      Your guess, i say, would be the best. It seems plausible.

    • Anders

      Yes 5 million is a lot, but it would only be 12-14% of the PS4 players by the end of the year.

    • jacksjus

      If the game reviews well anything is possible. My 2M is based off what previous PS4 games have sold. Even DriveClub is up there so if this game scores at least an 80 on Metacritic watch out.

  • AndyMAX


    • TheAdjustmentBureau

      Yeah, he’s not very good at what he does. lol

  • Psionicinversion

    10-12 million if they bundle it lmao, driveclub is in loads of bundles and is no where near 10 mill and were 4 months in and they were giving the game away with a discounted ps4. He talks some crap. 2 million at the most I’d say. After destiny people are going to be careful about hype

  • phony samestation

    The Order of 1886 had potential of being Sony’s Gears of War but failed. Why? Sony made a movie not a real game. Bloodbourne will have lesser graphics that the Order but more gameplay. Still I’am going to purchase Dark Souls 2 Xbox One version it looks amazing.

    Top games for 2015 it’s my personal preference:
    1. Quantum Break
    2. The Witcher 3
    3. Uncharted 4
    4. Halo 5
    5. Just Cause 3
    6. Tales of Zestiria
    7. State of Decay Year One Survival Edition
    8. Forza Motorsport 6
    9. Batman Arkham Night
    10. Scalebound
    Also Godzilla the game because I’m a fan.

  • Tiberian_Fiend

    Five million used copies, maybe. It’s a five-hour-long single-player game with no replay value.

  • rodney patrick

    LMAO,this guy is a joke

  • PachterStation

    When you consider that the PS4 is nearly tipping 20 million units, 5 million people buying a game is 25% of owners (10 million would obviously be 50% of owners). The PS4 is crying out for new games (same with the Xbox One, Vita and Wii U) and when you consider the hype, The Order is going to sell. I still say it’ll fall well short of the hype. All those cut scenes and quick time events, I’ll probably pick it up for a cheap price used.

  • AsianGamer

    its possible, the last of us made about 3 – 5 million by the end of 2013 in 6 months

    • PachterStation

      The Last of Us hit around 8 million total sales. Somehow, I don’t think The Order will be a big hitter on the PS4.

  • Mark

    No way 10 mill, or even 5. I think Pachter now gets paid tryna make news or sumthin lol. How the heck is it gonna see even 5, if Sony isn’t even marketing the heck outta it. Not just some commercials. Compare Destiny’s marketing and advertising to The Order’s…..hmmm. And I don’t think Destiny sold 10 mill on the PS4 yet. Smh
