Panic, the publisher who partnered with developing studio Campo Santo, announced the sales total in a retrospective post on its blog yesterday. Firewatch had been the top-selling downloadable game on PlayStation Store in February (its only console presence). But at 500,000 copies sold, “Firewatch can be considered a sales success,” wrote Cabel Sasser, Panic’s co-founder.
I played through this shortly after release in February and fell totally in love with it. I can already say with certainty that it’ll be on my list of must-play games for the year.
Really exciting to see the studio achieve this level of success so far, the game is entirely deserving of it.
Get Firewatch on PS4 or PC.
