Valheim is on Track to Sell 8 Million Copies by July, according to Embracer Group
It has been a while that we checked on Valheim and its feats. Recently, Embracer Group has shared some exciting details about its revenue and sales this month. Valheim now has sold a whopping 6.8m copies since its release in February. According to the developers, Valheim isn’t slowing down and is expected to bring in another 1m or 1.2m by the end of July.
Ever since its release, low budget indie game based on Vikings exploded into the scene and sold a staggering 4 million copies in just three weeks. The game reached the milestone of 5 million in March and continues to pump up the numbers. All this success for a gem of a game developed by only five people, a tremendous achievement isn’t it?
In Embracer Group’s full-year financial report, the report reads, “The quarter was driven by the release of Valheim, selling more than 6.8 million copies during the period. This truly amazing game continues to find new players globally and we expect another 1.0-1.2 million copies to be sold before the close of the current quarter ending June.”
Besides Valheim Embracer Group also shared sales figures of other games. The road sim Snowrunner and Sponge Bob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Re-Hydrated sold 2 million copies each. Moreover, Embracer Group also sold over 1 million copies of Destroy All Humans.
Embracer Group also reported that its net sales increased by 72% year over year, thanks to Valheim. However, Valheim’s concurrent players have dropped down to 95k, this is quite a drop when compared to the number of concurrent players in February (500k). Nevertheless, players are waiting for the game’s first major update since its release and this will surely boost up the figure of concurrent players.
