In the most the recent Conan Exiles devblog, Funcom revealed the sales figures for their first week since release. It seems they weren’t expecting such success.
Since its release just over a week ago, Conan Exiles has been dominating the #1 spot on Steam’s Global Top Seller List. With a whopping 320,000 units sold already! Funcom developers are both thrilled and overwhelmed by the communities response. Thanks to everyone’s support, the company has already managed to make back their development costs; and have now been given the freedom to finance any future content they wish to release.
Funcom CEO Rui Casais stated:
“We are deeply humbled and very grateful for the initial success of Conan Exiles. Funcom has gone through some challenging times in recent years and seeing the game we have poured so much time and effort into gain this amount of traction so quickly is very invigorating for everyone who works here. This is just the start of the Early Access adventure and we will do whatever it takes to make sure Conan Exiles turns into a fully-fledged game that has something to offer new and old fans of both Conan and survival games.”
As of now Conan Exiles‘ ratings are 10% higher than those of one of the most popular survival games, ARK: Survival Evolved. Let’s see if it lasts.
