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.
