Kingdom Come Deliverance Sold 1 Million Copies Across All Platforms
The recently released Kingdom Come Deliverance has sold 1 million copies across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The medieval RPG launched last week across all platforms, and it appears that the title is doing really well so far. “We’re about one million when I count all the platforms and distribution channels,” Martin Frývaldský, CEO of Warhorse Studios, told Czech website Lupa.cz.
Frývaldský notes however that this isn’t an exact sales estimate as some sales figures are still being calculated. The most revenue is gained from the first weekend after launch. “The tip is at the beginning, the CEO said. “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,” he noted.
The game has already received various updated across all platforms, but the rather messy update process has caused some confusion among gamers.
Alongside the game’s release and launch trailer last week, executive Producer at Warhorse Studios, Martin Klima, addressed backers, players, family, and friends:
“Four years after our Kickstarter campaign, our game is set to be released tomorrow. The task was really big and our team although still quite small and we always wanted to deliver, to create the game we wanted and we believed you wanted. Before talking about some background, all of us at Warhorse would like to thank our community, the backers and friends who helped us to bring this dream to life by giving us the chance to develop what we believe is a unique RPG experience!
The production realities of game development mean that a ‘release’ version has to be finalised some time before the actual release date. We could have used this time to get some rest, or we could use it to create some additional content and sell it to you as DLC, but we went back to the version-to-be-released and worked on it. The results are obvious: quests are more balanced, RPG progression is smoother, the game runs faster and every facet of the game got more polish. The drawback of course is that most of the data in the old build was replaced and has to be downloaded as a patch. At a hefty size, it’s going to take some time to download and it’s a shame. Still, we strongly believe that after four years wait it will pay off to wait a little bit longer while the Day 1 patch is downloading. Trust me, it will deliver the awesome experience YOU deserve!”
Kingdom Come Deliverance is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
