Swedish indie dev sees success on PC with licensed co-op shooter

Fatshark’s Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide passes 500,000 sales

Indie developer Fatshark’s licensed Warhammer shooter End Times – Vermintide has sold more than half a million copies on PC.

The co-op game launched last October and racked up over 300,000 sales within a month. It has since been bolstered with two free DLC packs and a third paid expansion. Further content and a console release are planned for later this year.

The Swedish studio previously developed medieval combat title War of the Roses, side-scrolling platformer sequel Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 and Escape Dead Island, a third-person spin-off to Techland’s first-person zombie series.

“We are really happy with the sales so far,” said Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund. “We reached half a million copies much faster than we estimated.

“As a small studio, this really is an amazing milestone for us. The office is a hive of excitement.

“We are overwhelmed by the positive response from both players and critics alike, and this has given us the extra drive to continue providing exciting and engaging content so that everyone can continue to enjoy the game long into the future.”
