The Embracer Group expects another 1 to 1.2 million copies to be sold by June end.
Iron Gate AB’s Valheim exploded on to the early access scene back in February with over five million copies sold in its first month. Despite the hype cooling off a bit en route to its first major content update, the Norse survival game continues to sell well. In the Embracer Group’s full year and Q4 2021 financial report, Valheim was revealed to have sold over 6.8 million copies.
It also helped drive revenue for the quarter which hit 780.9 million SEK (roughly $93.6 million) for Coffee Stain Publishing. The Embracer Group expects the sales momentum to continue with another 1 to 1.2 million copies sold before the current quarter ends in June.
“Hearth and Home” is the first major update on the game’s roadmap and will focus on food preparation, adding more recipes and other content. The next update, “Cult of the Wolf”, will add new encounters while “Ships and the Sea” will expand on the ocean biome and ship customization. New enemies, biomes, bosses, resources and items will be added this year so stay tuned for more details.
