A tip of the cap is most certainly necessary when it comes to the recently released Divinity: Original Sin 2. The game has been in the Steam top seller chart over the last fortnight, and had already managed to sell 420,000 on the Valve platform. During the year in which it was available on Early Access, it managed to shift 234,000 copies, which overall has now risen to 650,000.
After just four days, according to developers Larian, between gog and Steam Divinity: Original Sin 2 sold nearly 500,000 copies. In comparison to the previous game, it took Divinity: Original Sin three months to sell this amount. This is a figure that looks to continue to rise as its popularity continues to rise.
It is being considered a bit of a sleeper hit somewhat, and understandably so. Its remarkable improvement in early sales over its predecessor is a prime example of this, and that isn’t the only impressive accolade that it has been able to achieve. With the game reaching number one in the Steam charts after just 24 hours, it also meant that it managed to knock off the immensely popular PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds off the top spot, which is something that no-one would have seen coming anytime soon.
It’s even more impressive in the fact that this is a classic RPG, which is quite a niche genre compared to others in itself. With key features such as a fully integrated co-op mode and a voiced script throughout, the sequel has done extremely well to make such an impact, especially to knock off PUBG so soon after launch.
