It is always interesting, at least for me, to see a games number in terms of financial costs. I am sure that other people will be interested in this part of the game development.
Several games cost an x amount of money but did not make the same amount when they were launched. However, some games made twice the amount of money when they were released. I discovered a piece of very helpful information that demonstrates the exact amount of cost versus the amount of money spent after the game was released, so I decided to share it with you.
The first game that caught my attention was Red Dead Redemption 2. The game supposedly cost $370 million to make, and after its release, it made around $1.38 billion back in 2018. The next game, which is a fan-favorite, is Uncharted 4. This game required $40 million to be completed, and after its release, it raised around $1 billion.
Marvel Spider-Man is a big name in this game, which included $100 million to develop, and when it was released, it became a total worth $6.8 billion. Wow, what a number. Elden Ring is the game that caused the most controversy around its release, but it raised $6.85 billion, while it cost $200 million to develop.
I almost forgot to mention the one that brought me the most to trouble. Fortnite required $300k to be developed, and as you can see, other games numbers rose to millions, even billions. However, when Fortnite was released, it made more than $10 million. Yes, you read that right, 10 million dollars.
