The horror title The Medium has only been available for PC and Xbox this week, but regardless of this, the good piece has become a successful title for developers within a very short time.
Bloober Team landed a stroke of luck with the psychological horror title The Medium, because at least internally, the good piece can already be labeled a success. Within a very short time, the development costs were brought in again.
In an interview with the Polish magazine Money.pl, the developer studio has now confirmed that The Medium has already generated all development and marketing costs. Every additional turnover now benefits the studio and is to be booked as a profit.
This is all the more remarkable since The Medium was only released on January 28, 2021 and is only available for PC and Xbox Series X / S – but not for PlayStation, Xbox One or Switch. The potential buyers are therefore also quite limited.
The fact that the title was part of the Xbox Game Pass right at the launch should have helped. How much coal from Microsoft has contributed to the already positive result has not yet been known.
