Warhammer Vermintide 2 Is A Massive Success

Following its launch a little over a month ago, Warhammer Vermintide 2 was well received by fans both new and old. Being the almost perfect sequel, it improved what people loved and added more overall content. A lot of developers could learn from that structure when it comes to gaming follow-ups.

While the release was known to be a success, the exact level was unclear. In a report via DSOGaming, however, the games developer Fatshark has confirmed that sales have already topped over 1 million units.

PC Sales are leading the way!

We already knew that sales were very good. We reported only a few weeks ago that total PC sales alone for Vermintide 2 had eclipsed sales for all version of the previous game. The fact though that this was such a runaway success is a little surprising. I don’t think it’s unfair to suggest that the previous title was popular, but not on a major scale. It seems, however, that the lack of teamplay games is a major factor here.

In announcing the news, Fatshark said: “We are genuinely humbled by the reception of Warhammer: Vermintide 2 from gamers all over the world. We reached half a million units within the first week. And one million within five weeks. Which is far quicker than we ever expected.”

The future of the franchise

Nothing does a franchise better than having a runaway success. Therefore, we would suggest that despite the most recent game not even being 2 months old, the developers will likely already be looking into a sequel. Given the success of Vermintide 2, I daresay the fans will also be keen to see this game have further releases.
