Dante’s Inferno performing “solidly” since launch

EA’s pleased with how its new intellectual property, Dante’s Inferno — the second title from horror developer Visceral Games — has been performing since its launch early last month.

“The current market makes the establishment of new IP pretty challenging as consumers are perhaps more risk-averse than they otherwise would be,” EA UK’s sales director Rob Davey says. “But Dante’s Inferno proved itself out with a solid performance for a new IP, that gives us a solid platform to continue to engage and excite consumers via PDLC.”

The paid downloadable content in question is next month’s Trials of St. Lucia which offers co-op functionality as well as a level editor — $9.99/800 Microsoft Points, April 29.
