Evil Dead: The Game Sells 500K Copies

Embracer Group tweets about the success of Evil Dead: The Game, saying it has sold over 500,000 copies since its launch on May 13th. The initial results for the horror game are actually even stronger than that suggests. VG247 notes that Embracer's recently released full-year Financial Report narrows the period further, saying those half-million sales came in the first five days of the game's release:
As part of the Embracer Group's Full Year Financial Report (21/22), Saber Interactive's Matt Karch outlines explicitly that Evil Dead: The Game has sold "approximately 500,000 units in five days". The game is the first title to be developed and published by Saber's publishing unit, and – per Karch – represents a huge success for the company. Evil Dead: The Game is apparently tracking better than World War Z, and Karch notes that the game will "continue to kick butt" as the developer supports it, going forward.
