Ouch. Even with all the glowing reviews and critical acclaim, it didn't help DmC's case. I guess the fans did ultimately have the final say. Even still, I honestly didn't expect it to sell this poorly.
"Capcom shipped 1 million copies of DmC Devil May Cry in January, the company announced as part of their nine-month earnings report today. Additionally, the company has revised its sales forecast for DmC Devil May Cry as well. Initially, Capcom expected to ship 2 million copies of the game by March 31st, 2013. Now, that figure has been lowered to 1.2 million. For comparison, Capcom shipped over 2 million copies of Devil May Cry 4 when the game launched in 2008. Devil May Cry 4 had/has the highest initial shipment of any Devil May Cry title in the series."
