Stardew Valley has sold 6.5 million copies in the past two years alone


Stardew Valley sales have reached yet another massive milestone, as the farming RPG has surpassed 10 million copies sold. That’s impressive enough, but perhaps the most notable part is that the game’s success has not slowed down a bit – in fact, thanks to its continued releases on a wide variety of platforms, Stardew Valley has sold more in the last two years than it did in the first two years after launch.

PC players got Stardew Valley in February 26. The game was an instant hit, and sold one million copies in the space of two months. Console versions followed in late 2016, and the Switch port landed in October 2017. By January 2018, SuperData reported that the game had sold 3.5 million copies (via GamesBeat) – and that’s before the iOS port launched later the same year.

And now the official site has been updated to report that Stardew Valley has sold 10 million copies worldwide. Finally, my childhood obsession with Harvest Moon 64 has been vindicated – yes, the world has at last seen that farming RPG games are good, actually.

Part of the continued appeal of the game is down to Stardew Valley mods, which have added everything from games of fetch with your pets to polygamy.

The officially free patches haven’t hurt, either. The latest new update includes loads of new upgrades, customisation options, and quality of life features.
