Very similar to Shadow in the same amount of time.

Then why did SE look at Shadow and JC4 as losses. Didn’t they lose money after the first quarter of sales?

If I remember correctly, they wanted Shadow to make up for the rather bad sales of JC4.

I don’t think it did. 2018 wasn’t a good year for them.

Only JC4 was seen as losing money. SotTR had a weak start but was still able to meet their sales expectations for its first 4 months in the market.

Since TRU they were never fully satisfied with every launches performance.
Except their silence for Rise, but it was a special one because it was released only for Xbox One at the launch.

The problem is SE and Eidos before them want GTA and Uncharted level of sales without actually giving the series the time or proper guidance to get to a level which may return that sort of number. TR is always in a catch 22 in that regard. It's a clear profit making series and it could be more. SE want more but dont really do anything to assure it.

This. TR should/could be selling much more and meeting expectations if they
1. Actually took time with new ideas and 2. Had a much better marketing strategy.
