The Outer World has proven to be a surprising hit for Private Division.

Private Division is, of course, a publishing label for Take-Two. The massive company revealed its earnings for Q2 of FY2020, and part of the post-earnings call was dedicated to Private Division’s output.

Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds, which was a critical darling, has also been a commercial success for the company. Although sales figures weren’t shared as part of the call, Take-Two said it “handily exceeded expectations”. The game is also anticipated to be among the largest contributors to revenue in FY2020.

On the call, Take-Two reiterated that Outer Worlds is coming to Nintendo Switch early in 2020.

Although the company touched on Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey during the call – Another Private Division game – it did not make any comments about its sales one way or another.
