Developer Fatshark eventually released its co-op action game Warhammer: Vermintide 2 on March 8 following several pre-release betas. According to the programmers, this title has been a runaway success as it launched, together with them revealing Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has sold over 500K copies in just the four times since its launch on PC.
500,000 units offered in this brief time period is a remarkable accomplishment for any game, let alone a PC exclusive from a programmer. That being said, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 was a sequel and a co-op focused game, therefore there were many players interested in it. In addition to all those sales numbers, Fatshark also released some other stats such as Warhammer: Vermintide 2.
Since launching, players have apparently killed over 50 billion enemies and invested a total of 204 million minutes watching people flow the game on Twitch.
“We’re happy and proud that gamers worldwide have taken Warhammer: Vermintide 2 to their hearts. 500,000 games sold was a milestone we had, however not under a week later release. ”
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is now available on PC and will launch PS4 and Xbox One after this calendar year, with console betas occurring later this Spring.
