Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Beats The First Game’s Six-Month Sales Figure In Just Four Days

Sold over 500,000 copies already


Co-op first-person brawler-shooter with abilities Warhammer: Vermintide 2, is a hit. Developers Fatshark has announced the sales numbers just four days after its release on March 8th, for good reason.

“We are proud and happy that gamers worldwide have taken Warhammer: Vermintide 2 to their hearts,” said Martin Wahlund, CEO of developer Fatshark. “500,000 games sold was a milestone that we had, but not less than a week after release.” reports that the 500,000 unit sales was reached after six months for the first game. So to see that record broken in mere days proved that Vermintide 2 is doing really, really well right now.

Vermintide mixes the co-op FPS formula of Left 4 Dead with RPG progression and loot and set in the Warhammer universe. We won’t be seeing another Left 4 Dead coming, maybe not so soon now that they will start making games again, but good to see an indie developer finding a niche and doing so well to serve it.
