Shellshock Sequel Plans

In addition to outlining their latest efforts to get the company back on track, this Eidos Financial Report (thanks HomeLAN Fed) reveals that plans are in place for a sequel to ShellShock: Nam '67, their Vietnam War first-person shooter. Here's word: "ShellShock: Nam '67 (launched in September), has proved to be a successful new franchise with shipments to date of circa 800,000 units, and with strong sell through, which exceeds our original forecasts. A sequel is already underway." On a related note, Eidos still negotiating sale on MCV (thanks Mike Martinez) announces: "Britsoft publishing giant Eidos has stated it is still aggressively courting potential buyers, hoping to conclude the matter “as soon as possible” – while announcing to shareholders that Championship Manager 5 has now officially slipped into 2005."

Corporate double-speak, probably. They likely 'sold' 800,000 copies for both platforms (PC and XBox) to the retailers. That may be how many they shipped - only 10% of that may have then been purchased by consumers. PR firms take liberties with reality like that from time to time. That's the whole point of PR - to determine which aspects of truth to emphasize.

Unfortunately, the only reliable source for sales statistics online is a professional service. In other words, you only get to view their data if you pay for it - and it isn't cheap.
