Update, February 22: Kingdom Come: Deliverance has sold “around one million” copies on all platforms in just over a week, according to Warhorse CEO Martin Frývaldský.
“The number is surprisingly positive, but it’s not something we [thought we could] not achieve,” Frývaldský explains in an interview with Czech news site Lupa.
Here’s our Kingdom Come: Deliverance PC review.
According to SteamSpy, Kingdom Come: Deliverance has sold nearly half a million copies on PC alone, which means, if the historical RPG has sold one million copies, Steam purchases make up almost half of the game’s overall sales.
Original story, February 15: Kingdom Come: Deliverance has reportedly sold nearly half a million copies across all platforms, according to the game’s creator.
In an interview on Czech television last night, creative director Daniel Vavra estimated that the game would reach 500,000 copies at some point today.
According to Slovakian newspaper Hospodarske Noviny (a rough google translation of the full article is available via that link), Vavra said that the game was set to break even today, as well as passing 500,000 copies sold. For a game that was only released on Tuesday, that’s quite an impressive turnaround.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is currently the top-selling game on Steam, and saw its concurrent player count peak at a little over 75,000. At the time of writing, it’s the seventh most-played game on the platform. Steamspy report that a little under 165,000 people own the game on Steam.
Despite a successful launch, Kingdom Come: Deliverance has been subject to a few early hiccups. Developers Warhorse studios say bug fixes to fix issues with quests and frame-rate drops are two weeks away, and they’re also working on an update to the game’s hard-as-nails lockpicking. Meanwhile, the modding community has taken a separate issue into their own hands – here’s how to get unlimited saves, without using up your Saviour Schnapps.
