Korean company KRAFTON invested in production The Callisto Protocol and studio content Striking Distance Studios order $162 million And that’s without taking into account all the horror advertising costs. However, the creator’s project Dead Space by Glenn Scofield fared far worse than expected, and Korean analytics agencies have already begun cutting their forecasts for sales, stock prices, and publisher revenue. This is stated in the report of the portal K-Odyssey news agency Yonhap News Agency.

Samsung Securities says it expected The Callisto Protocol to sell 5 million copies. but early results show that within a year of release, horror will have a hard time breaking the 2 million barrier..

The long-term sales outlook is currently negative. The developers will try to capture the attention of the audience with content updates and expansions, the first of which is scheduled for February, but analysts state that users rarely return to short single-player games that received mixed reviews in the media and mixed reviews from the audience at the start. On Metacritic “Protocol” for both indicators is in the “yellow” zone. AT Steam it’s not all good either 61% approval.

Some Korean experts openly call The Callisto Protocol a “failure” and say they doubt the prospects for a sequel.

Daishin Securities, Samsung Securities, Shinhan Securities, KIWOOM Securities, Korea Investment & Securities and Hyundai Motor Securities expect KRAFTON shares to decline on The Callisto Protocol selling reports.
