Released earlier this week, Warhorse Studios’ Kingdom Come: Deliverance has already drawn praise for its attention to detail to medieval history with engaging combat and storytelling (though it has its shares of bugs and flaws), and it seems like the game is already off to a good start shortly after release.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance director and designer Daniel Vavra explained in an interview on Czech TV (via IGN) that Kingdom Come: Deliverance was on track to reach over 500,000 in sales just two days after its release.
According to Vavra, shipments of the game are over 100,000 copies at retail, while sales of the game on Steam have already surpassed over 300,000 copies sold, and the game is currently at the top of the best-sellers chart on Steam (as of this writing). Based on this, Vavra (and the studio) expect that the game will reach over 500,000 in sales very soon.
Vavra explained during the interview that overall, the team’s hopes are that “anything over one million sold copies will be nice for us,” so the current sales figures already put the game at nearly half of what they are aiming for, which bodes well for Warhorse and future support for the title.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. For a closer look at the game, you can check out its launch trailer for a taste of its medieval RPG action.
