People Can Fly confirms no profits in 2021 for Outriders.


Outriders did not make any money in the year 2021. The confirmation came in the form of a financial document from the game’s developer, People Can Fly, which stated that it had not received any royalties from April 2021 to December 31, 2021. Basically, the game does not reach the breakeven point in the time allotted.

In short, it’s yet another loss-making game for Square Enix, following the recent loss of about $200 million for Marvel’s Avengers and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

Square Enix had previously stated that Outriders had exceeded expectations in terms of both digital sales and active users. Expectations were obviously low, and it was expected to sell in-game content or DLC to break even.

However, this is yet another factor that explains why Square Enix was so eager to sell its Western division to the Embracer Group for $ 300 million in order to concentrate on Japanese projects.
