Gearbox Publishing has announced that Remnant 2 has sold more than one million units in its first week across PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC.
The three-person cooperative shooter launched on July 25 to high praise from players and critics, with the excitement around the long-awaited sequel clearly converting to sales too.
“To everyone who helped us achieve this amazing milestone, thank you for your unwavering support,” said Gunfire Games CEO David Adams. “This was a multi-year journey for us and we couldn’t be happier to see fans having such a great time with a game we put our heart and soul into.”
Gearbox Publishing San Francisco president Yoon Im added: “Remnant 2 exceeded our expectations. As a commercial and critical hit, we’re incredibly proud of the Gunfire team and everyone here at Gearbox Publishing who brought this title to life.
“As excited as we are, we’re incredibly thankful to the Remnant community who supported us and the Gunfire team during development. To the new Remnant fans who joined our community in the past week, we’re thrilled you joined us on this journey.”
The sales milestone perhaps isn’t too surprising as Remnant 2 shot to the top of Steam’s best-sellers list ahead of its launch. Gunfire Games said it was “humbled” and “grateful” for the overwhelmingly positive response from the community and vowed to improve the game’s performance, with bugs and other issues like a PS5 invite error causing problems for some players.
In our 9/10 review, IGN said: “Where Remnant: From The Ashes was a strong first draft, Remnant 2 is a revolutionary sequel and a sterling manifesto for the looter-shooter soulslike.”
