Bloober Team have made more than a few horror games these last few years, but their newest release, The Medium, was a big step for them. Not only was it quite different from the stuff they’ve made in the past, it was also their most ambitious and biggest production ever– which, of course, meant higher development and marketing costs than any of their previous games.
And it seems the psychological horror title has got off to a great start where sales are concerned. In a recent press release, Bloober Team confirmed that The Medium has already sold enough to recoup all of the game’s development and marketing costs. That’s a pretty impressive accomplishment, seeing as this announcement came after just one day of the game’s launch. The Medium is also available on Xbox Game Pass, which surely must have offset sales a little bit, though it doesn’t seem to have affected the numbers that much.
The Medium is available now on Xbox Series X/S and PC. In our review of the game, we awarded it a score of 7/10, and said, “The Medium is a decent horror game that has some really good ideas, but ultimately fails to live up to its potential.” You can read our full review through here.
