DOOM Switch had a fairly solid launch.
The Switch adaptation for Bethesda’s 2016 DOOM has been estimated to have sold 81,000 units during the first week of retail. First week sales can be viewed on the VGChartz Global Weekly Chart for the week ending November 11.
Breaking down the sales by region, the game sold best in the US with 47,364 units sold (59%), compared to 21,877 units sold in Europe (27%). Looking more closely at Europe, the game sold an estimated 3,564 units in the UK, 4,851 units in Germany, and 5,301 units in France.
To compare, the original DOOM sold 455,607 units in its first week on the PlayStation 4 and 205,127 units on the Xbox One.
Keep in mind that this is only the first week of sales for DOOM, I’m sure during the holiday season these numbers would have spiked. Thoughts? Let us know in the comments down below.
‘DOOM returns as a brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience. Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat – whether you’re obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes.’
Doom released for the Nintendo Switch worldwide on November 10, 2017. It also released worldwide on May 13, 2016 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
