Kingdom Come: Deliverance is the latest AAA game to grace our monitors, courtesy of Warhorse Studio. The game has been lauded for its dedication to historical accuracy and a rare take on the RPG genre. That praise looks to have translated into sales figures, with Warhorse Studio CEO Martin Frývaldský confirming that the game sold a million copies within its first week, across all platforms.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance was released on February 13, and to a mostly positive critical reception. That critical reception looks to have translated into commercial success, as the game sold a million copies over its first week on the market.

“We’re about one million when I count all the platforms and distribution channels. We certainly thought about one million," Warhorse Studio CEO Martin Frývaldský was quoted as saying. "The number is surprisingly positive, but it’s not something we thought we could not achieve.”

That figure is impressive by all counts, especially considering the fact that the game had a number of funding issues during the course of its development. The studio, in fact, had to launch a Kickstarter campaign to prove its commercial viability to investors. 

Lauded for its realism, attention to detail, and dedication to historical accuracy, Kingdom Come: Deliverance still manages to offer a thrilling gaming experience. It is, however, currently plagued by bugs—bugs we expect to be fixed with future updates and patches.
