GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information on video games. The site was launched on May 1, 1996, created by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein. It was purchased by ZDNet, a brand which was later purchased by CNET Networks.
The open-world multiplayer survival RPG Valheim is tearing up the charts right now, both in terms of players and sales, and now the developer has said the early results for the game are “mind-blowing” and have far exceeded the studio’s expectations.
Iron Gate co-founder Henrik Törnqvist told PC Gamer that Valheim’s success is “mind-blowing” and “really awesome.” He also thanked fans for their support so far.
Törnqvist told the site that his team believed that Valheim would sell enough copies to “sustain” the studio, but it has far exceeded that. At the time the interview was conducted, Valheim reached 2 million copies sold, a figure that Törnqvist said he “could never have guessed.” The game is now up to 3 million copies sold, and with its peak concurrent user figure recently passing 500,000, another sales milestone might not be far off.
