The devs took to Twitter to announce the milestone and their intent to donate. The tweet also says that if their stretch goal of 100K sales is met, they’ll double the donation, making it $50,000. The game’s first week ended yesterday, so we’re now awaiting a new announcement about whether the stretch goal was hit or not.

The game originally launched on PC and PS4 in August of last year. The game finally landed on Xbox One last week with enhancements for Xbox One X owners including improved visual quality, 60 FPS framerate, and dynamic resolutions of up to 4K.
In case you missed the hype last year, Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice puts players in control of Senua, a Celtic warrior who embarks on vision quest into the Viking underworld in search of her lover’s soul. The game received great reviews from critics and took home the most awards in the recently concluded British Academy Game Awards 2018.
