By   /   Feb 12, 2015

Sonic Boom is now officially the worst-selling Sonic game of all time.

The milestone came to light after Sega announced that Sonic Boom has so far sold 490,000 units combined across the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. In comparison, the previous Sonic Lost World sold 710,000 copies, while Sonic Generations sold 1,850,000 copies before that in 2012. Going even further, Sonic & All-Star Racing Transformed pulled off 1,360,000 copies worldwide.

Alien: Isolation was a blessing for the company. At the end of 2014, the survival horror has sold 1,760,000 copies and the new year has only seen to the numbers pick up even more.

To sum it up, Sega achieved a revenue of $685 million in its third quarter, while total profit remained at just $18 million. The company expects to spend $125 million on restructuring costs, laying off 300 employees. Sega now expects to lose $110 million during its fiscal year.

Sega has revised its 2015 fiscal year forecast to 230,000 units sold on the Wii U. It also expects to sell 1.16 million units of software on the 3DS.
