Sekiro has exceeded expectations, beating very famous names head-on. Some of the main competitors were Control (produced by Remedy Software), Death Stranding (by Hideo Kojima) and Resident Evil 2, a remake of the Capcom game that even outsold the original.

Sekiro and its importance compared to other games

The surprise of seeing Sekiro win is mainly due to the fact that it is a difficult game that requires dedication and learning from the players. This bodes well for more companies to invest in games with precise commands, capable of testing players’ skills.
