Microsoft Sets the Record Straight, Tomb Raider Sales Numbers Are “Sell-Through”

Microsoft and Crystal Dynamics shared Rise of the Tomb Raider sales numbers earlier, saying that the game has sold 1 million units since its November release. Strangely, some publications assumed that sales numbers were for shipped units, not sold through.

We don’t know why that was the case but to clarify and set the record straight, Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg has Tweeted out.


Rise of the Tomb Raider sales were considered disappointing in the beginning, even a PlayStation developer came out to say that it will do better on PS4.

Not only that but Sony’s product manager Chris Brown also shared Tomb Raider sales numbers on Twitter, and expressed his disappointment that the game didn’t do so well.


Rise of the Tomb Raider was a massive release for Xbox but unfortunately it was launched alongside Fallout 4. For gamers, the decision of which game they want to pick up on November 11 was pretty simple. So as a result, the game struggled initially.

However, as you can see sales have picked up and Crystal Dynamics can expect a decent profit now that the game is heading to PC as well. Meanwhile, there is still no word on when this title will hit PlayStation 4.

We’ll have more for you on Tomb Raider on PS4 in the near future, so stay-tuned!
