Medieval Open-World RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance Passes Six Million Sales

Much-loved medieval open-world RPGĀ Kingdom Come: DeliveranceĀ has passed another major sales milestone, developer Warhorse Studios has announced.

Per a post on X (formerly known as Twitter), the game has crossed the six million sales mark, which feels like an appropriate way for Warhorse to celebrateĀ Kingdom Come‘s sixth anniversary.

When combined with the news thatĀ Kingdom Come: DeliveranceĀ is coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime this year, this news also means it’s a pretty good time to be aĀ Kingdom Come: DeliveranceĀ fan.

“That’s right, sire. Six million sales.”

In the announcement post, Warhorse thanks fans for still playing the game six years after its initial release, claiming that the studio and its game “wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you”.

It’s worth noting that according to Steam stats portal SteamDB,Ā Kingdom Come: Deliverance‘s 24-hour player count peak sits at 4,632 (at time of writing).

That’s higher than Rocksteady’sĀ Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which, despite being released just over ten days ago, attracted just 3,131 players over the last 24 hours, again according to SteamDB.

Given thatĀ Kingdom Come: DeliveranceĀ is a single-player RPG andĀ Suicide SquadĀ is a live-service looter-shooter (and thatĀ Kingdom Come: DeliveranceĀ is six years old),Ā that’s no mean feat.

If you’re not familiar withĀ Kingdom Come: Deliverance, it’s an open-world RPG set in early 15th-century Bohemia.

It revolves around Henry, a blacksmith’s son who sets out to seek justice for the murder of his family by mercenaries in the employ of the Hungarian King Sigismund.

As you’ve probably guessed from the synopsis,Ā Kingdom Come: DeliveranceĀ emphasizes realism; you won’t find any elves, dragons, or goblins here.

You will, however, find an RPG in which quests are designed to be non-linear and to have multiple approaches, and in which you can specialize in a number of different combat and non-combat disciplines.

Kingdom Come: DeliveranceĀ is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One (and, naturally, for current-gen consoles via backwards compatibility). A Switch version of the game is also due out this year.
