Deep Silver announced that the critically acclaimed RPG, Outward, has surpassed 1 million copies sold. Outward is a co-op adventure exploration game that launched on March 26th, 2019.
Twenty months from launch, and having just announced an upcoming second DLC, The Three Brothers, both Deep Silver and Nine Dots Studio celebrate this milestone.
Mario Gerhold, International Marketing Director at Koch Media, said:
“Today, perhaps more than ever, gamers are embracing challenging RPGs and immersing themselves within their deep, rich plots. Outward is a great example of these games, that are not only great fun, but encourages the creation of emotional bonds from players to their characters and delivers a welcomed, temporary escape into the rewarding fantasy worlds for both single and co-op adventurers.”
Guillaume Boucher-Vidal, CEO at Nine Dots, added:
“It’s hard to find the words to say when something that seemed impossible happens to you. After flopping with our two previous titles, I had very conservative expectations and thought selling 100,000 copies would be a great step up from our previous attempts. To have sold ten times that is surreal. Outward isn’t a perfect game, though it has a lot of heart. And we had more heart than resources when we began work on Outward. Now we have experience, an audience, and more resources than ever before. I’m excited to think about what comes next.”
