Valheim Sells 2 Million Copies, A Huge Result For A Game Made By 5 People

The multiplayer fantasy survival game Valheim is off to a very good start. After reaching a peak of over 360,000 concurrent players on Steam, publisher Coffee Stain has now confirmed the Norse-inspired game reached more than 2 million copies sold in under two weeks.

Valheim is currently in Early Access on Steam, having launched on February 2. At its peak for concurrent users, Valheim exceeded the numbers of Grand Theft Auto V and Destiny 2. 

Developed by Iron Gate Studio, Valheim is developed by a team of 5 people, though it started as a passion project from a single person: Richard Svensson. Coffee Stain took notice of the game and signed Iron Gate to a publishing deal in 2018.

In a statement, Svensson said he did not anticipate the huge success of Valheim. The goal was to cover development costs, and with sales of 2 million, the company has done that and then some.

"I guess our future is safe for a while now," Svensson said. "Valheim has not been rushed, it's a product of more than three years of iterative development with features added and tested on a core team of early adopters. Also as a designer I don't like to follow popular conventions but try to go my own way, this seems to have worked out."

Coffee Stain executive Sebastian Badylak said, "The gods have truly favoured Valheim. We've been refreshing the sales report to get the latest numbers, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down."

Coffee Stain started out as a developer, releasing games like Goat Simulator and Satisfactory, before opening up a publishing division in 2017. Coffee Stain also published Deep Rock Galactic, which has also sold more than 2 million copies.
