If it hasn’t been clear enough already, Fall Guys has been incredibly successful for Mediatonic and Devolver Digital, but the extent of the game’s success for PC might have just been revealed.
The market analyst company Superdata has published some new information that suggest the physics-based, multiplayer platformer has managed to accrue $185 million on PC alone during launch, making it the most profitable PC launch since the release of Overwatch back in 2016. The data estimates that around 8.2 million copies of Fall Guys were sold at launch, and with purchasable Kudos to boot, Mediatonic managed to rake in the cash.
As far as launch sales go, it’s a hugely impressive figure that eclipses the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn, which saw its PC launch in August too, managing to shift 716,000 units. It also beats out the likes of Death Stranding, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and more besides. Most impressive of all is the fact that Fall Guys managed to achieve all that while technically being a free game on PS4 for the month of August, as PS Plus members could claim the title as part of their subscription.
What About Fall Guys’ Future?
While the game has certainly hit the ground running, the real question now becomes whether or not the game can sustain its level of success in the future. Recently, a new update was added to the game that remixed a lot of the game’s courses, along with introducing a massive hammer by the name of Big Yeetus.
Beyond that, Mediatonic are working towards the launch of Season 2, set to arrive next month, which will add new cosmetics, levels and rewards to the game. It’s clear that the developers are going to be heavily supporting Fall Guys going forward, so we’ll see if the player base sticks around too.
