Atomic Heart’s sales have exceeded expectations
by Danny Craig ·
Focus Entertainment, the publisher of Mundfish’s first-person shooter Atomic Heart, has revealed that the game has surpassed its expected sales figures, causing the company’s revenue to hit an all-time high.
- Focus Entertainment revealed its revenue for the fiscal year 2022-23 as well as Q4 2022-23 in a recent financial report. Its revenue for the fiscal year was €194.1 million, the highest ever for the company, representing a 36.2% increase over 2021/22. €52.6 million of its income was generated in Q4, with the release of Atomic Heart contributing significantly.
- In March, Mundfish celebrated the game surpassing five million players just three weeks following its launch. It’s worth noting that the figure does not accurately represent the sales of the game, as it was made available on Xbox’s Game Pass service for subscribers from day one, which is likely to account for a large portion of its players. Regardless, the game has been a success, and Mundfish intends to continue its support with DLC content that includes new areas, storylines, and enemies, as well as free quality-of-life updates.
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge, A Plague Tale: Requiem, and Evil West were also released by Focus Entertainment during the quarter, contributing to the increased revenue stream. Due to their ongoing support with additional content, the publisher's live service titles, Insurgency: Sandstorm and SnowRunner, also accounted for a portion of its earnings.
