All In Games will continue to receive a share of profits from ongoing sales of as part of the original publishing agreement it signed, and said it ultimately decided to sell the property after receiving an "irresistible" offer from 505 Games. 

Ghostrunner had sold 500,000 copies by the end of 2020 across platforms including Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Nintendo Switch, and managed to recoup its €2.5 million production costs on day one. 

A next-generation version of the game is on the way for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, both of which are expected to arrive in 2021.
