Mike Hayes confident about Vanquish’s US sales numbers

October 26, 2010

We can only hope Vanquish strikes gold in biggest market for Shooters:

Vanquish, the new sci-fi shooter from Resident Evil director Shinji Mikami, is off to a pretty good start. Mike Hayes, President and CEO of SEGA West told IGN the company is “reasonably encouraged” by the first-day U.S. sales.

It’s been in the marketplace for two days, we’ve seen the day one numbers and we’re reasonably encouraged, but I think we need to see the rest of week one and probably week two just to see how it’s going to play out,” he said.

The challenge is that it’s a new franchise and that it’s releasing head-to-head with a lot of established franchises in the busiest time of the year.

Being released in the same week as Fallout: New Vegas is one major hurdle and Call of Duty: Black Ops is out in a couple of weeks, here’s hoping Vanquish will work out fine over there. Also SegaBits got mentioned in the IGN article, Sa-weet!
