Bloober Team confirms that The Medium’s sales during the first 24 hours covered the project’s production and marketing costs.
Bloober Team confirms that The Medium has already covered production and marketing costs. In a brief statement collected by the local Money.pl media, the Polish studio claims that the sales of its latest job have reached a profit-making state.
“According to the issuer’s estimates, sales of the game The Medium have reached a level that covered the production and marketing costs of the game,” they explain in the message. Despite its availability in the two Xbox Game Pass subscription models, it seems that its sales on Xbox Series X | S and PC (Microsoft Store and Steam) have allowed the team to start receiving benefits during the first 24 hours of commercialization. The Medium landed on January 28 at a recommended price of 49.99 euros, although until February 4 it offers a 10% discount, which reduces it to 44.99 euros.
