Why Did Rage 2 Fall Short of Expectations?

Ahead of the launch, Rage 2 was hyped as one of this year’s major releases. The post-apocalyptic shooter had all the elements of a monumental title, from some of the best studios associated with the genre.  Rage 2 did top the UK charts at launch but in an admittedly mediocre week.
