DOOM Eternal Earned $450M in Nine Months

The LinkedIn Profile of David S. has some sales information about DOOM Eternal, as the Product Manager at Gearbox Publishing lists a previous position as "monetization designer" at id Software (thanks PCGamesN). He cites SuperData as the source for saying the first-person shooter sequel generated $450 million in its first nine months:
Product Management Lead for id Software products. Responsibilities included product KPI development, game monetization, economy, analytics, feature specs, feature roadmaps, and more. One major focus was on Doom Eternal, which generated over $450m in revenue in the first 9 months of release (per Superdata public information).

Carmack did some really great work up until the megatexture fiasco. He made a few mistakes along the way like betting on the wrong horse with OpenGL (a real turd of an API), but when megatextures didn't work out it seemed like the right time to hang it up.

And yet he still continued to make important contributions to VR, most notably with timewarp. Too bad he sold his soul to the devil (Zuck).

John Carmack's support of OpenGL, as well as Gabe Newell's support of Linux (failed Steam Machines, very useful Proton) were judiciously applied and successful measures in stopping Microsoft's plan of a Directx walled garden (a la Apple).
John Carmack's was instrumental in the success of Vulkan, a branch derived from the "real turd" OpenGL.
Gaming is much better now by having choices and not being constrained to a unique closed proprietary API.

Some unknown game studies opted for using it, wasting their time
