Horror film The Callisto Protocol isn’t selling as expected

Striking Distance released its debut game, The Callisto Protocol, last month to moderate critical acclaim. Sales of the project were lower than publisher Krafton had anticipated.

According to a report by Yonhap News Agency saysthat the game cost 196 billion won ($138 million) to develop. That’s a very large budget for a project of this nature. However, the authors of The Callisto Protocol previously said themselves that this is an AAAA-level game.

As a result, some Krafton investors have lowered their price targets. And Samsung Securities, an analytics firm, said it previously forecast annual sales of 5 million copies of the Callisto Protocol but now believes it will be difficult to reach 2 million copies. It was also backed by Korea Investment & Securities, which lowered expectations to 2.1 million copies from 4 million.

New content is coming to The Callisto Protocol this year, including a paid story add-on (this summer).

The Callisto Protocol is available on PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
