Marvel’s Midnight Suns was a “commercial flop”

Marvel’s Midnight Sun Released late last year to critical acclaim, the game failed to find commercial success, according to Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick. Zelnick told Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier that “it’s possible the release period wasn’t perfect”, but he believes the game could find an audience over time, as has been the case for other titles developed by Firaxis. With the game set to receive multiple DLC characters this year, including fan favorites like Venom and Storm, it’s definitely possible that it will continue to find an audience in the coming months!

Marvel’s Midnight Sun launched on December 2, which is a pretty tough month for a video game. At this point, most of the year’s bigger titles have launched and many potential buyers have to do some Christmas shopping for their friends and relatives. October and November have been pretty stacked months this year in terms of releases, and a January launch might have helped the game attract more buyers.

Of course, that’s not the only factor that could have hurt Marvel’s Midnight Sun! The game launched exclusively on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Versions for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch are all slated for release in 2023, provided nothing has changed as a result of the game’s issues. The Nintendo Switch platform has a huge user base and if Take-Two and Firaxis deliver a solid port, it could have a lot of success.

It’s always disappointing to see good games struggle to find an audience! Marvel’s Midnight Sun has already seen some discounts, so those who haven’t had a chance to get their hands on the game in the last two months can do so for a little cheaper. The game is one of several titles included in Target’s current “Buy One, Get One 50% off” sale, along with several major releases starting in 2022. Readers can learn more about that sale here.
