It appears that Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is a hit for Fatshark. According to its CEO, Martin Wahlund, the game has sold more copies on the PC than its predecessor on all platforms. In other words, in just two weeks, the team has managed to outsell the lifetime revenue of the original Vermintide.
As Wahlund told PCGamesInsider:
“Right now, we have outsold, in terms of revenue, the lifetime revenue of the original Vermintide, and on PC only.
So it’s been pretty good so far. You never know what you’re going to get when you launch a game. We had high hopes, we enjoyed playing it internally. We knew we had a good game. We didn’t have a huge marketing budget, but we got a lot of support, both from the media, from streamers and from gamers all over the world. It’s been fantastic for us. We’re a relatively small independent company so it’s tough to get through. We knew we had a good game with the first one, and we had a good following, but you never know with a sequel.”
Wahlund acknowledged that Vermintide 2 is better in every way than the first Vermintide, and that the team has learnt a lot about giving people something to strive for.
Furthermore, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 runs and looks incredibly well on the PC platform. The game uses both the DX11 and DX12 APIs, so make sure to read our PC Performance Analysis.
