Impressive Sales Milestone Achieved by Factorio

Factorio celebrated a new sales milestone in this week’s Friday Facts blog post after reaching over 3.5 million units sold since the game’s Steam debut in 2016. Since then, the game has sold around 500,000 copies annually, which is a remarkable accomplishment for a niche independent title. According to Wube Software, this achievement supports the company’s “no sales” stance. Factorio has vowed to never run promotions for its game, keeping the price at a fixed $30 USD all year long. According to the creators, this is being done with consideration for users who have spent money on the game. The makers have remarked that although sales may boost statistics in the near term, games see reduced numbers for months following a sale as users resort to third-party resellers.
