The Callisto Protocol is a flop; sold less than Mario Kart 8 in December

From his original announcement, The Callisto Protocol drew the attention of locals and strangers for its concept that immediately reminded Dead Space. Unfortunately, he was left behind and unable to meet the high expectations of the players when he debuted late last year. It seems that the negative reviews affected the trading performance.

A K-Odyssey report sheds light on the poor sales that KRAFTON’s horror video game Striking Distance had during its first weeks on the market. According to the information, it was estimated that it would sell between 4 and 5 million units during its business cycle. Now, expectations are at 2 million.

Games with many years in the market surpassed The Callisto Protocol during December

While specialists doubt that The Callisto Protocol can get back on track, new data from NPD Group seems to confirm that the project had a disappointing launch at the sales level, as very old titles performed better in US stores during December.

The space horror video game was reportedly unable to reach the top 10 sales on US soil, debuting at number 17. It peaked at number 10 on the PlayStation charts, but did not make the top 10 best-selling titles on Xbox ecosystems during the last month of 2022.
