No Outriders royalties for People Can Fly
People Can Fly's latest report to investors reveals that Square Enix hasn’t paid any royalties yet, suggesting that action RPG Outriders was not profitable in its first quarter.
Outriders is estimated to have sold 2 to 3 million units and had as many as 3.5 million active players around launch. However, technical problems with the game servers and gameplay bugs dampened enthusiasm for the new IP.
Big projects: People Can Fly also mentions Project Gemini, published by Square Enix, which is due to release by the end of 2024. Another action RPG project codenamed Project Dagger is also due to be published by Take-Two in late 2024.
Self-publish: The studio is also planning to leverage its existing IP as well as create new ones and venture into self-publishing for future projects. It may be risky, but People Can Fly clearly thinks the potential rewards are worth it.
