Anno 1602 and 1503 were the two most successful games ever in Germany. AFAIR 1503 was the bst selling game of the year two times in a row. In year one it needed a few weeks to blow away Warcraft 3, the other year it slowly sold another 250k or so.

Sunflowers wrote they´ve invested 17 (or 16?) Mio EUR into Paraworld and Anno 1701. Far Cry reportedly cost 6.5 Mio. All previews say that 1701 is in good condition, looks very expensive and sounds phenomenal due to real 5.1 orchestra recordings (instead of upmix).

edit: the Anno franchise sold about 4.5 Mio units, a large chunk of this in the German speaking countries.
