RNGesus that’s a lot.
We enjoyed the heck out of Risk of Rain 2, but we didn’t think it would sell a ton of digital copies so quick, especially in early access mode. Glad we’re proven wrong.
Developer Hopoo Games announced after its 28 March release, the action RPG roguelike surpassed one million units sold.
“To give you guys a little bit of context, it took us almost 5 years to hit that same number on Steam for Risk of Rain 1. We are excited to see how many of you are jumping into RoR 2. Thank you all so much—we feel very lucky.”
Hopoo also said that the one million sales mark is one million units sold and is independent from the 2-for-1 promotion it had on the Steam platform. Redemptions are at 200,000 or so, which means the player count right now is just over 1.2 million. Most indie games with online capabilities wished they had that many numbers overall; these guys achieved that within a month or so.
So what’s next?
Well, finishing the game, duh. The game’s still in early access. The studio said it’s going to bring in new content in the coming months, teasing returning content from Risk of Rain 1 like survivors.
“We hope our first content update plants the seeds necessary to continue growing Risk of Rain 2 into an even better game for players.. This patch will also include quality of life updates and bug fixes! As a reminder, we will still be shipping patches containing bug fixes, alongside full localization, before the first Content Update.”
Risk of Rain 2 will leave early access in Spring 2020.
