Publisher Koch Media has shared official sales data for RPG Pathfinder: Kingmaker ahead of its sequel’s release. The Owlcat Games-developed RPG sold over 1 million copies globally.
It took almost three years for Pathfinder: Kingmaker to reach this milestone. The game was released on September 25, 2018, and published by Deep Silver, a subsidiary of Koch Media (which itself is owned by Embracer Group).
Kingmaker is based on tabletop RPG Pathfinder and is inspired by classic CRPGs like Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights. The game received mixed reviews at the time of its release due to numerous bugs and other technical issues. However, it eventually gained a strong fan base and community.
The game’s sequel Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous officially launches today on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Russian studio Owlcat Games raised over $2 million on Kickstarter, surpassing its initial goal of $300,000.
