Arc System Works’ Guilty Gear Strive has surpassed 300,000 units in total worldwide shipments and digital sales since launch. It became available worldwide on June 11th for PS5, PS4 and PC with peak concurrent players on Steam hitting 26,193 at launch.
The milestone is noteworthy since Guilty Gear is usually considered a less popular fighting game franchise compared to, say, Street Fighter, Tekken or Mortal Kombat. Concerns over its streamlined mechanics also emerged before the recent betas but the title has performed exceedingly well in terms of critical response.

Guilty Gear Strive marks the end of the story for Sol Badguy and the Gear Maker but its fighting game journey has only just begun. Additional content will be coming as part of Season Pass 1, which includes five new fighters, two new stages and alternate color outfits for each character. The first DLC fighter, a brand new entrant for the series, will be out in July.
