New Hellblade 2 Sales Data Offers a Clearer Picture of How It Did on Xbox Game Pass and the Charts

Hellblade II was touted as one of the big exclusives of 2024 when it released in May, but overall sales figures have been hard to come by since its launch. Now, thanks to the most recent sales data from Circana, we have a clearer idea of ​​how it’s performing.

According to Circana analyst Mat Piscatella, Hellblade II was ranked 37th overall in dollar sales for May 2024, which puts it at 21st overall among Xbox Series consoles. Hellblade II did not receive a physical release.

Hellblade II was released on Xbox Game Pass at launch, which was confirmed in its engagement data, where it ranked 12th on Xbox in terms of monthly active users. That puts it just behind Fallout 76 on the platform, but ahead of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Apex Legends, and Forza Horizon 5.

Piscatella shared the sales figures on X/Twitter, as Hellblade II’s performance meant it failed to appear on any major charts. Xbox and Ninja Theory have shared little information on Hellblade II’s sales since its initial release, leaving fans to speculate on Steam’s competitors and other data. editor Chris Dring noted that the game failed to break into the Top 100 European sales charts in what he described as a “brutal month” for game sales.

The sequel to Ninja Theory’s acclaimed action-adventure Hellblade II was announced shortly after the studio was acquired by Xbox in 2018 and finally released earlier this year. It’s been described as a “defining moment in the evolution of real-time visuals” by Digital Foundry, and we wrote in our own review: “Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II delivers a spellbinding adventure filled with cinematic spectacle and narrative surprises that maintains a sense of growing momentum and never wastes a second of its skimpy runtime.”

Elsewhere, Ghost of Tsushima returned to the top spot thanks to its Steam release, while Call of Duty topped the Xbox and PlayStation sales charts. Overall, however, it was a tough month for hardware spending, with all three consoles seeing double-digit declines.

With Hellblade II now out, Xbox is looking ahead to the rest of 2024, with Indiana Jones and the Great Circle and Avowed among the first-party releases on its calendar. You can see all the other biggest games of 2024 here.
