Factorio Hits 3.5 Million Copy Sales Milestone


The little game just got bigger and bigger.


The popular management and construction simulator Factorio recently hit a sales milestone, moving over 3.5 million copies. The game was launched on August 14, 2020 to widespread critical acclaim as well as praise from the players.


This news comes from a post on the official development blog. “Another year has come and gone,” the studio behind the game, Wube Software, explained to fans and followers. “We know this year we’ve been very sparse with any details about the expansion and that’s what you really want to hear about. Believe me, we really want to tell you that and in time we will. There are still major sections of the gameplay that are changed and tweaked, and if we tell you about them now The information will quickly become outdated and inaccurate.

Wube Software announced that the expansion pack for the game was in development on February 5, 2021. The company went on to port Factorio to Nintendo Switch about a year later on October 28, 2022. There’s been very little news about the expansion pack in the meantime.

“We have some other topics we can discuss,” the developer noted. “This year, we reached another sales milestone with over 3.5 million sales this Christmas. We continue to enjoy consistent, consistent sales of around 500,000 each year, which in retrospect validates our original no-sales policy we have adhered to since our launch on Steam.” “.

Wube Software noted how “the Nintendo Switch launch went well,” adding that “to date, we’ve sold over 40,000 copies.” The company went on to describe how it “appears to be very popular in Japan with nearly 40 percent of Switch sales from there.”

In addition to creating great mods, they also provide tutorials and modding tools such as IDE integration and automation tools.”
