It seemed fairly obvious that Until Dawn did quite well for sales, given its finishing 7th in the United States for sales during August 2015, which is impressive in its own right before taking into account the game launched on the 25th of that month. It’s large sales numbers caught a lot of people by surprise, performing well above expectations, including those of the developers.

Speaking with Playstation Lifestyle, Supermassive Games executive producer Pete Samuels spoke about the games excellent sales:

“[Until Dawn] definitely surpassed expectations. I think that’s already been stated in other interviews, and reports of significant retail outlets running out of stock during the first weeks after release kind of supports that.”

Samuels went on to say that the team will be building on what they accomplished in Until Dawn, which may include a sequel to the horror game:

We do talk internally about what Until Dawn 2 could be, as it clearly can’t be a sequel in the traditional sense, with the same characters facing the same threat, not least of which because in different stories some or all of them are already dead! We’ve investigated other ways we could do Until Dawn 2 but it probably is a little early to be discussing that.”

Not only did Until Dawn sell well, it was also critically well received, currently sitting at a very healthy average of 80 on Metacritic, including a rave review from this very site.
