While the exact number of copies sold isn't known, revenue for Panzer Dragoon: Remake already exceeded the game's production costs by more than a double within its first weekend.

According to a report from Forever Entertainment (thanks Saturn Memories for pointing this out) and Reuters (thanks DhessGamer), the combined revenue from digital and physical sales of Panzer Dragoon: Remake in its first weekend have already doubled the game’s development costs. In addition it’s noted that, combined with the prepayments from partners (not disclosed which ones), revenue from the game has in fact already exceeded the costs of game production by over 300%. This matches earlier remarks from the company’s CEO that the game’s development costs had already been recouped before it was even released. Due to contractual obligations, the exact sales numbers will apparently not be communicated. The report concludes by stating that the game will be released on additional platforms in the coming months. We already know that at least two of those platforms are Google Stadia and PC (via Steam/GOG).

With all that said, we’ve also been told that we shouldn’t take these reports as “official” announcements in the sense that they have not been communicated by the game (or Forever Entertainment)’s official channels. Nonetheless, and while we don’t know what their sales estimates were, it would appear that the remake is already a success for Forever Entertainment. The fact that the game is set to receive additional patches based on feedback from fans also bodes well for its release on other platforms.
