Valheim is arguably already the games industry’s biggest success story so far in 2021, and if its momentum continues at this pace it’s hard to see anything surpassing it for the rest of the year. Today, developer Iron Gate Studios has announced yet another sales milestone.
The sandbox survival game has now surpassed 5 million sales. That’s another million since the last count… a week ago! Valheim has steadily been selling one million copies per week more or less since its Early Access launch on Feb 2.
Today’s announcement came with some
- Spend more than 15,000 years playing Valheim
- Watch more than 35 million hours of gameplay Twitch
- Pushed us to number 39 in the best user-reviewed games on Steam of all time
- Made our five-person strong team excited to come to work (virtually) each and every single day (that’s one person per million sales, by the way!)
The message ends with a pledge to stick to its 2021 roadmap, which we already know includes the launch of the game’s next biome. Although, it’s worth keeping in mind that the team is just five people strong, and delays are always possible.
