Despite looking like a fantastic shooter, Rage 2 isn’t resonating with gamers in the same way the original game did.
While the game did manage to top the physical UK charts, which the original failed to do, sales are down 75% from the OG Rage. With sales data in the UK reportedly resting at a solid 50/50 split, this open-world sequel is slipping far behind.
Of course, Rage 2 may be saved by other regions or even by post-launch sales. After all, Bethesda-published immersive sim Prey was saved by an impressive increase in post-launch sales.
While we can’t say for certain as we haven’t had the pleasure to play it, the game does look like a fantastic first-person shooter. Hopefully, sales will kick back up after a considerable sale so that id Software can eventually make a Rage 3.
