Iron Gate Studio’s new title Valheim is most assuredly “having a moment.” The Nordic crafting adventure – which launched as a Steam Early Access title on February 2 – has rocketed out of the starting gate, having sold over two million copies in its first two weeks of release and reaching a peak concurrent player rate of over 390,000 wannabe vikings.
The Swedish developer is as surprised as anyone by Valheim‘s immediate success. “We didn’t really anticipate that,” candidly stated CEO Richard Svensson to RPS. “Our goal was pretty much to cover our development cost so we could continue to exist as a studio and continue working on Valheim. I guess our future is safe for a while now.”
