Epic on Bulletstorm Sales

Kotaku has some perspective on sales of Bulletstorm from Epic president Mike Capps, after hearing from EA that People Can Fly's recent first-person shooter "under-performed," and learning from a financial analyst that the game barely sold 300,000 units in its first month of availability. Capps confirms that the game didn't make them any money, but still thinks it was a worthy project as he looks ahead to PCF's next project. They paraphrase him saying: "Capps says they could have taken the easy route all along, not done Bulletstorm and gotten People Can Fly, the Epic-owned Polish development studio on that game to just chrun [sic] out Gears of War content. That's not what he wants those folks doing. That's not what he wants Epic doing." They also offer a direct quote. "The studio has shipped AAA content," he said. "The next thing we do with People Can Fly will be great."
