The Witness makes $5m in week one

Jonathan Blowhas revealedthat The Witness has sold over 100k copies in its first week, generating over $5m in the process.

While $5m is a fair chunk of change, Blow said that the seven-year development cycle of The Witness meant that the game’s budget was yet to be recouped in full.

However,” he continued, it is looking like, as time goes on, we should break even and make a comfortable safety margin on top of that, which will allow us to make more nice games in the future — unless some kind of world economic disaster happens.”

Blow concluded his blog post by revealing that he was looking at bringing The Witness to further platform, including iOS and Android, as well as Xbox One.

Develop has the full story.
