Multiplayer first-person shooter Brink has sold more than 2.5 million copies, says Splash Damage’s Paul Wedgewood.
The studio CEO made the announcement in an interview with industry website Gamasutra regarding the developer’s new publishing arm, WarChest.
Wedgewood estimates the game was worth US$120- to $140 million in revenue for publisher Bethesda.
“But of course, as an independent video game developer, we don't earn that kind of revenue, as we're not the publisher of the title,” he said. “We could see there was the potential to serve our fans content directly, and while we don't want to take anything away from what Splash Damage does, we wanted a vehicle that we can dedicate exclusively to that pursuit.”
To the effect, WarChest is working on a free-to-play iOS game called Rad Soldiers, and two “AAA” games, one for PC and one for consoles.
