Doom Eternal breaks series record for launch weekend sales

Doom Eternal isn’t just an excellent follow-up to 2016’s Doom in terms of quality — it’s also a great seller.

As the second title in id Software’s rebooted franchise, it doubled its predecessor in launch revenue for Bethesda. On Steam alone, Doom Eternal broke a record for the highest-selling game last week. This resulted in an impressive player count as well on the PC service, with over 100,000 concurrent players unleashing hell on the demon hordes all at the same time.
