Our fellow writers in PlayStationenthusiast had liked Firewatch for its beautiful graphics and setting and it seems that people across the world also endorsed this game .
Publisher Panic recently revealed on its website that Firewatch sold roughly 500,000 full-priced copies in its first month of release, a number that was described by the developers as “huge”, since they are strong enough to recover their initial investment.
“Firewatch’s budget, while huge for us, was modest for a game of its quality and scope, but we made our investment back in about one day. Firewatch has sold around 500,000 full-price copies in its first month. (It was even the top PlayStation Store digital download in February!) As an indie game, or heck, even as a “real” game, ok fine but not as a Call of Duty or Star Wars game, Firewatch can be considered a sales success.
We’re so grateful. And relieved. But mostly grateful.”
There are some nice information included in this particular blog post regarding Firewatch, so you should definitely take a look at what Panic had to say about their project one month after its initial release.
