Curve’s Bomber Crew hits $1m sales in two weeks

UK publisher Curve Digital has a hit on its hands.

Its most recent release, Bomber Crew, has hit the $1m sales revenue mark in just two weeks since its release.

Curve first burst onto the scene with 2012’s Stealth Bastard Deluxe. Bomber Crew has now set a new company record for biggest single day sales, and helped Curve to its highest ever monthly revenue, as well as already becoming its second highest selling Steam game.

"We’re so incredibly pleased with how well the launch of Bomber Crew has gone, and it continues to break all Curve records, from our most wishlisted title on Steam to the fastest to reach $1m in sales,” Curve marketing director Alex Moyet told MCV.

“These numbers are a huge testament to the amazing game Runner Duck have made as well as the efforts of the whole Curve team, from publishing and marketing to production and QA. Curve is going from strength to strength – keep watching this space."

Dave Miller of developer Runner Duck added: "Our first experience of launching an indie title has been an absolute pleasure thanks to the lovely folks at Curve, who have given us nothing but invaluable support. On their advice we pushed to get the PC release ready for October 19th, and now its clear that advice is paying off.

“Bomber Crew’s launch has surpassed our highest expectations. Although the most pleasant surprise is the enthusiastic community that has rallied around the game already. Their indispensable feedback has enabled us to release a significant update to the game just one week after launch, adding some much-requested features.

“If this is indie development, we’re in it for the long-haul!"

Bomber Crew is also due for release on PS4, Xbox One and Switch in Q2 2018.
