The Outer Worlds PS4

Obsidian's The Outer Worlds took the RPG genre by storm last year when it became an instant hit on PlayStation 4, and it looks like that has translated into a big success at retail with more than two million copies shipped worldwide. This makes it the studio's most successful title since South Park: The Stick of Truth.

Take Two confirmed the welcome news as part of its latest earnings call, but what makes the number all the more impressive is that it was effectively given away on Xbox One. The Outer Worlds launched on Game Pass after Microsoft bought the developer, meaning that the amount of players who have actually engaged with its systems and mechanics is even higher. We're sure a sequel is in the works for Xbox Series X, although it's highly unlikely to come to PlayStation 5. At least we have some upcoming DLC to look forward to here at Push Square.
