Tonight, September 14, 2022, Sony Interactive Entertainment unveiled a new Team Ninja RPG: Rise of the Ronin. The game is published by Koei Tecmo and will also arrive on PC. The publisher, according to some statements, considers it an important strategic project and aims to sell more than 5 million copies.
The information comes from Takashi Mochizuki, a Bloomberg reporter. Mochizuki writes, as you can see in the tweet below: “Koei Tecmo has confirmed that ‘Rise of the Ronin’ is a game that hopes to reach sales in excess of 5 million copies, as it is one of the important strategic pillars of the growth strategy. medium term of the company. ”
It should be noted that this is an exclusive PS5 console and that it will also be released on PC. Selling five million copies without releasing the game on other consoles is therefore an obvious goal, especially considering that it is a new IP. The first Nioh, after a few years, however, has reached 5 million copies, so it is not impossible to achieve this result with Rise of the Ronin.
Clearly the ambitions for this project are high. The open world nature could attract the attention of many players, as happened with Elden Ring. Rise of the Ronin has also been a project in development for many years, so Team Ninja got to work on the foundations seriously. For more details, you can refer to our previous news.
We hope to see more of this ambitious Team Ninja game soon.
