The morning of this April 17, Ninja Theory announced that Hellblade: Seuna’s Sacrifice has already surpassed the 50,000 units sold on Xbox One in less than a week.
On Twitter, the studio gave the good news and reported that, with this figure, they can already meet one of their goals, which is to donate $25,000 USD to the non-profit organization of Mental Health America, which supports people with emotional problems and performs studies on mental health.
Previously, Ninja Theory announced that if Hellblade manages to sell more than 100,000 copies in its first week of release, it would donate $50,000 USD to the same organization. It seems that this last goal will be impossible to achieve since there are less than 24 hours to complete the date.
Hellblade: Seuna’s Sacrifice was originally released on PlayStation 4 and PC in August 2017. During its debut, it sold 250,000 copies and 3 months later it got 500,000 copies. In October of that same year, Ninja Theory announced that it would celebrate World Mental Health Day by donating all the proceeds that the game raised on October 10. At that time, Hellblade raised more than $80,000 USD, a figure that was donated to the association of Rethink Mental Illness.
After a leak by a video game classification system, Hellblade: Seuna’s Sacrifice was announced for Xbox One.
We can now donate $25K to Mental Health America @MentalHealthAm !
