Sega also reports a profit in the six-month period ending on September 30th.
Despite the number of bugs it shipped with on releases, The Creative Assembly’s Total War: Rome 2 has managed to sell over 800,000 units since launching on September 3rd according to an earnings report released by Sega for a six-month period ending September 30th. Given that the title has been out for two months now, it’s possible that the current numbers are even higher.
Sega also revealed that it had made a profit of ¥1.11 billion ($11.24 million) in the consumer sector and Total War: Rome 2 will be the biggest title in the series thus far.

But it’s still a compelling game and made all the better with the updates. Stay tuned for more details.
