Final Fantasy XV reaches 10 million copies

Final Fantasy XV turns six years old this year.
Although the game's reputation in the community is mixed, sales are still slowly dripping into its piggy bank: Square Enix announced that total FFXV worldwide circulation reached 10 million copies.Whether this counts as a success is hard to say, but it seems more likely no than yes: In 2018, a second series of additions that was supposed to be released during 2019 were unexpectedly canceled.
The head of Final Fantasy XV, Hajime Tabata, left Square Enix.The PC port appeared a year and a half later than the console version, and it was clearly invested a lot of money: for example, especially for the PC-version made the official voice in Russian, and fans were planned to provide advanced tools for modding.
However, they never appeared - active support for the PC-version ceased at the same time as the cancellation of the second series of DLC.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Mankind Divided - over 12 million copies by 2022.The latest Tomb Raider trilogy:Tomb Raider 2013 - over 14.5 million copies.Rise of the Tomb Raider - over 11.8 million copies.Shadow of the Tomb Raider - over 8.9 million copies.As we know, Square Enix did not consider Deus Ex and Tomb Raider valuable enough assets to cling to them: both franchises recently passed into the Embracer Group.
But with the Final Fantasy is not going to part with it.
Perhaps the place of production plays its role: FF projects are mostly developed in Japan - there the game is cheaper to create than, say, in the U.S.
San Francisco, where the Tomb Raider team sits.
