Square Enix says it is “pleasantly surprised” by the success of its new IP, Outriders, stating “the digital sales ratio for the title have been very high” and insisting that its “decision to make Outriders available with Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass as soon as the title launched also worked in [its] favour”.
