More than 500k players have already purchased Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor. It took the new auto shooter just one week to reach this milestone.

Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor tops 500k units sold in its first week

Developer Funday Games shared the news on Steam, thanking Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor players “for making the Early Access launch exceed our wildest imagination.”

The original game reached 500k copies sold in December 2018, 10 months after its Early Access launch. This means Survivor is selling much faster than its predeccor. But is is worth noting that Deep Rock Galactic is already a successful IP with a huge, loyal community, not to mention that Funday Games’ title has the base price of only $9.99.

Last month, Ghost Ship Games announced that Deep Rock Galactic had sold over 8 million copies across PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. The game has a long tail of sales, remaining one of the main revenue drivers for the studio’s parent company Coffee Stain/Embracer Group.

In 2023, Deep Rock Galactic also surpassed 150k DAU (up 32% year-over-year) and 1 million MAU (+23%) on Steam, which is another testament to its long-term success.

Launched on February 14, Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor peaked at almost 57k concurrent players, surpassing the original game’s all-time high. It was also the 5th highest-grossing premium game on Steam for the week of February 13-20 (9th when including free-to-play titles), outshining other products like Granblue Fantasy: Relink, Enshrouded, and Baldur’s Gate 3 in terms of weekly gross revenue.

Survivor currently has an 84% user rating on the platform based on more than 9,700 reviews.

In its blog post, Funday Games shared a roadmap for the Early Access period, saying that work on the first content update is already underway. The studio is now collecting feedback from the community, while planning to add new biomes, artifacts, bosses, and missions.
