If the game is good it'll do fine, and the scum suckers of the internet will move onto the next thing that either says racism is bad or acknowledges that people other than white dudes exist. Heck I mean, Grant Kirkhope unlocked his twitter after like a day, so it probably hasn't even been as bad a reaction as they were expecting, even with the forums being bombarded with "white genocide is real" nutsos.

If you actually slog through the YookaLaylee hashtag on Twitter or any video on Youtube ranting about it, a large chunk of the people commenting negatively about Yooka-Laylee outright state that they weren't even interested in the game to begin with.
All-in-all, I think that if this game ends up selling poorly, it probably would've sold poorly without the JonTron drama. The effect it has on sales, for better or worse, is gonna be minuscule.

From insulting "all the anime avatars" (despite looking like an anime character himself) to making people think that actual Yooka-Laylee developers were banning everyone on the Steam forums, Playtonic really doesn't need that association.

1. They move into making their second game and try to be better.
2. The company is disbanded and NINTENDO BETTER BE FAST to offer this amazing people a Job.

What might happen to Playtonic if Yooka-Laylee flops...
