Splash Damage’s Brink is estimated to have sold around 2.5 million copies. According to CEO Paul Wedgewood, the Bethesda-published multiplayer shooter made some pretty damn good cash.

“With Splash Damage, we finished Brink, and it’s estimated to have sold more than 2.5 million units worldwide, which at retail would mean that it’s generated around $120-140 million in revenue,” he told Gamasutra. “But of course, as an independent video game developer, we don’t earn that kind of revenue, as we’re not the publisher of the title … but we could see there was the potential to serve our fans content directly, and while we don’t want to take anything away from what Splash Damage does, we wanted a vehicle that we can dedicate exclusively to that pursuit.”

That “vehicle” is the free-to-play model, which Splash Damage has moved into. The studio founded its own publisher of F2P games, WarChest, and release a new iOS strategy game, RAD Soldiers, in June.
