Lost Planet 3 is a dud

Written by David Stellmack

Only shipped 300,000 copies

Lost Cause might be a better name for the Lost Planet franchise these days with the news that the latest installment didn’t achieve near its predicted 1.2 million copies in sales. According to Capcom, the Spark developed Lost Planet 3 was only able to ship 300,000 copies it sources tell us that a good number of those are still on dealer shelves.

The dud that is Lost Planet 3 would seem to indicate Capcom’s hold on the franchise going forward. We suspect that they will be holding off doing any more sequels in the series for a while or at least till it can identify a developer and a story that is capable of re-launching the franchise. Then again, this disaster might spell the end for Lost Planet all together.

So far Capcom has had no comment as to why the game did so poorly, but the reviews were so-so at best and the chart performance as you can imagine was dismal.
