Warhorse Studios’ Kingdom Come: Deliverance is out and about on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC at the moment and the game is already making waves and big moves in the sales department, moving more than 1 million copies across all three platforms.
The news comes courtesy of writer, creative director and co-founder of the Czech based game studio, Daniel Vavra, who tweeted out the news that the game had made a massive milestone in sales despite all the negative attention that the Intersectional Inquisition in games media have attempted to use to hurt the game’s performance on the market.

According to Steam Spy, Kingdom Come: Deliverance has surpassed 488,000 in game sales on PC alone. So that means the remaining sales are divided up between the Xbox One and PS4, putting them at around 512,000 units combined. It will be interesting to see where the game falls on the NPD Group’s charts for February and whether or not it can beat out Capcom’s stellar-selling Monster Hunter World.
As mentioned, even with all of the bickering and faux-offensive taken at the fact that the game attempts to mirror an accurate historical portrayal of a 15th century Bohemia, the media’s attacks against Daniel Vavra, Warhorse Studio or Kingdom Come: Deliverance have not stopped the game from selling quite as well as it has.
There’s really no telling what the upper ceiling of sales could be like for a game like Kingdom Come: Deliverance. A lot of it will depend on how well the developers support the game post-launch, but it sounds like that shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
As reported by Forbes, Warhorse Studios have a series of patches in the pipeline for home consoles and PC to address some of the more pressing issues that reviewers and gamers complained about when it comes to the technical performance of the game, such as the UI, some of the clipping issues, and a few fixes for some of the bugged quests sprinkled throughout the rather massive open-world RPG.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is available right now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
