They could smell it on the racks.
Interest in it has picked up slightly, but a full run can still be bought pretty cheaply. Even if people largely ignored it, Hickman is continuing it here. Otherwise, why would the first issue have a recap paragraph?
The real question is, why wasn't the whole Norman subplot dropped and the whole miniseries abbreviated into maybe the first issue of his regular FF run? What was the point there? I am guessing it was a half-assed idea to reintegrate the FF into the "current" Marvel universe and try to generate interest by flagging it with "Dark Reign"--and also, for a graphic designer like Hickman, one of the worst designs for the modern comic rack I've ever seen in my life. It was like saying, "Please don't buy this. Don't even notice it there on the racks."
