A Plague Tale: Innocence shifts over a million copies, and gets a hefty Steam discount

"We can't wait to bring other adventures and strong emotional experiences!"

Just over a year after launch, A Plague Tale: Innocence has hit an impressive new milestone – the number of copies the medieval-style action-adventure game’s shifted around the world is now into the millions. And, if you’re yet to try the game and thinking of picking it up, developer Asobo Studio and publisher Focus Home Interactive have some good news – it’s on sale for a whopping two thirds off on Steam right now.

The news comes via a press release, in which the studios announce the 2019 stealth game’s sales have now surpassed the one million mark worldwide. Phwoar. “The entire team at Asobo Studio is extremely proud of the path A Plague Tale: Innocence has taken in one year, with Focus Home Interactive by our side,” says chief creative officer and Asobo co-founder David Dedeine.

“Every day more and more players are discovering the story of Amicia and Hugo, which is for us the greatest source of motivation,” he adds. “We can’t wait to bring other adventures and strong emotional experiences!”

It’s possible we could see more of these “other adventures and strong emotional experiences” in a sequel, which was rumoured to be in the works last year. At the time, Focus told us: “Of course, we announced last year we are partnering with Asobo for a future project but never confirmed if it was a sequel to A Plague Tale or not – and will give more details on that title when the right time comes.” So, A Plague Tale 2 is far from confirmed at this point, but an announcement doesn’t seem to be off the table, either.
