Deep Rock Galactic
is something of a co-op gem, its blend of planetary mining and alien bug-squashing action earned a place on our Top 10 Games of 2020 countdown. Today comes word from developers Ghost Ship that the game has surpassed two-million copies sold -- far more than the 200,000 lifetime sales the studio hoped for.
"Before we launched into Early Access, we reached an internal agreement that 200.000 units sold during the game's lifetime would be suitable, and would allow us to continue and do a new game," Ghost Ship writes in an update (via Steam
). "But now we just crossed two million units sold, and the game is performing stronger than ever - not only in sales, but also in the strength of the community."
The stat-heavy post features a very cool info-graphic (as seen below) that highlights a few cool things. Like over 1 million of the lifetime sales came after the game launched in 2020, the average time spent playing the game is over 31 hours, and that 7.5 million player deaths occurred from friendly fire. Which is more than the 6.3 million that fell to the giant Bulk Detonator bug.
Deep Rock Galactic is set to get its next major update next month which will introduce two new biomes to mine, in addition to several changes and updates.
