The video game holding company Embracer Group, the parent company of Valheim publisher Coffee Stain, has published its news earnings report during the first quarter of 2021 and offered new sales figures for Valheim, which launched Early Access in February and sold 4 million copies this month alone. The report indicates that Valheim's sales have risen to an impressive 6.8 million and that the company expects to sell another 1.1 to 1.2 million in the current quarter, which will end in July. This confirms that the developer of the figure 6M Iron Gate Studios announced about two months ago.
Valheim is the only Coffee Stain game released so far this year, increasing the company's net sales by 851%. Elsewhere, the Embracer group, like much of the gaming industry, is also doing pretty well, having sold close to 2 million copies of the excellent SnowRunner and more than 2 million copies of the remake of SpongeBob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom.
There are many things to look forward to in the future of Valheim: the last patch just brought some witty visual updates and we’re still waiting for the big one Home and home update to release.
