I think that honor still belongs to Gothic 3 for now.
Ultima Online, Star Wars Galaxies and Ultima 9 come to mind. Ultima 7 too maybe. Riven's launch on DVD wasn't smart either. A lot of units sat on the shelves.

Or how about Return to Zork's 45mb object file on the hard drive requirement? That was a lot of space back then. Gothic is still not well known enough in NA to make that distinction.

Another bad launch? The Wing Commander movie.
