As many people know Soul Calibur 6 was one of the most anticipated fighting titles of the 10’s decade following its release back in October 2018. There are many people who are speculating on what type of success Soul Calibur 6 will have in the coming year especially considering the positive reviews it has received from gamers and critics alike since its release. The last Soul Calibur game that we saw was released for the PlayStation 3 for the Xbox 360 back in 2012. While Soul Calibur V was a solid 3D fighting title during the early 10’s the game received a mixed reception for its story mode and managed to sell at least 2.3 million copies worldwide since its release. Soul Calibur 6 has a much better storymife along with improved in-game mechanics and high definition visuals thanks to the Unreal Engine 4.
Speaking of which the Unreal Engine 4 is also the same game engine that was used for Tekken 7 which came out in Japanese arcade centers in 2015 before appearing on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One worldwide in 2017. Since its release on home consoles it was considered to be one of the most popular fighting games of 2017 alongside Injustice 2. Also, following its release Tekken 7 managed to reach over 2.5 million copies in sales shortly after its release and is still an addictive fighting title for the PS4 and Xbox One today. As it currently stands it hard to tell whether or not Soul Calibur 6 will surpass Tekken 7 or not but it would not be too surprising if it managed to sell at least 2 million copies worldwide within the next year or so. Also, in terms of popularity within the fighting genre of gaming both the Soul Calibur and Tekken series are almost on the same level. Soul Calibur 6 could possibly reach one million copies in worldwide sales before the end of 2019.
