According to a report from Lupa, the game has officially sold over 1 million copies. In fact, the CEO of Warhorse Studios Martin Fryvaldsky revealed, “We’re about one million when I count all the platforms and distribution channels. We are really happy.” It is an impressive feat since Kingdom Come: Deliverance is Warhorse Studios’ first game since the company formed under the moniker. This sales number smashes the 500,000 unit peak previously set during the initial days of the games release.
Particularly, the game’s Steam userbase is enormous. SteamSpy reports that Kingdom Come: Deliverance has over 400,000 users on the distribution platform alone, with the title continuously performing well among Steam’s top 10 highest playercounts.
The figures aren’t 100% accurate as they’re based primarily on the first weekend of release, which sees the biggest spike in sales followed by a long stream of steady, but lower, numbers. To quote CEO Fryvaldsky, “the tip is at the beginning. The game is very similar. At the beginning, there is a strong tip and then there is such a tail and it is up to the tail to keep it as long as possible.”
While this report form Lupa is a loose translation from Google Translate, the essential idea is that Kingdom Come: Deliverance is successful, perhaps more than expected. Even with the game’s issues that still require patching, which you can learn more about in our review, the game appears to have been a solid hit. It demonstrates that despite what some AAA publishers insist, players still want story-driven singleplayer experiences in their games.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
