Moon Studios: Ori and the Blind Forest was profitable one week after release

Moon Studios CEO Thomas Mahler revealed in a series of posts on NeoGAF that Ori and the Blind Forest had managed to make a profit after being on sale for only one week on Xbox One.

“Microsoft is super happy, so we’ll see about Ori’s future,” Mahler said adding that Moon Studios is incredibly busy at the moment, “There are 5 potential things we have in the oven right now (spanning from smaller to huge projects) and I’d love to talk about these games, but as usual, we have to keep things secret for a while longer.”

The five projects in production at Moon Studios are all being funded by Ori, Mahler says, and asks fans to buy or gift Ori to their friends if they’d like to see more from the developer. “The more copies we sell, the higher the chance that we get to work on new projects. I’d actually be interested in talking about Ori’s story.

“I have somewhat of an outline now of where I’d like to go with the IP in the future, if we’d get to work on another Ori-related project, but I’d be interested in hearing what you guys generally thought about it. I think we crafted a big world with memorable characters and there’s a lot of potential for us to go in and keep working on that tale.”

Ori and the Blind Forest is available now for Xbox One. An Xbox 360 version is slated for release late this year.
