The title shows quite a bit, and the game’s success has been bolstering through over the past period. The exciting part is that the PC platform has solely outsold the PS4 and Xbox One, which is stating the state of the PC platform.
In a recent PCgamesinsider.biz article, the CEO of Fatshark has stated that the PC only release has brought an entirety of success. In his words:
Right now, we have outsold, in terms of revenue, the lifetime revenue of the original Vermintide, and on PC only.
So it’s been pretty good so far. You never know what you’re going to get when you launch a game. We had high hopes, we enjoyed playing it internally. We knew we had a good game. We didn’t have a huge marketing budget, but we got a lot of support, both from the media, from streamers and from gamers all over the world. It’s been fantastic for us. We’re a relatively small independent company so it’s tough to get through. We knew we had a good game with the first one, and we had a good following, but you never know with a sequel.
As many of the support came from previous players of the game, as it is a value of being a sequel, but also an improved game for which players find it easily approachable than before. That being said, it appears that Vermintide still receives support and is being bought on a constant level, which contributes to bringing more players to the game.
Compared to the original Vermintide back in 2015, it has sold far more copies in general. So, there’s no room to argue more around that. Fatshark has done their job in a fashion manner, and their predictions have become a reality.
