Farming Simulator 19 sells over two million copies worldwide

Farming Simulator 19 released at the end of November, and since then, it’s fair to say it’s become a bit of a surprise hit. Just ten days later, it had sold a million copies, according to publisher Focus Home Interactive. Then back in January Farming Simulator League launched as a real esports venture with a €250k prize pool. Now, Focus has revealed that the game has sold more than two million copies worldwide – a pretty amazing feat for such a seemingly niche game.

As reported by GameDaily.biz, the publisher has released its report on earnings for the fiscal year 2018-2019, which reveals that the series’ latest iteration, Farming Simulator 19, has surpassed the two million sales mark. This sales success has contributed towards a record revenue year for Focus this year – it’s beaten its guidance target by more than 20 per cent.

Some of the farming sim’s success could be due to some cool new features it’s received. In its first patch, the tranquil agricultural sim added a much-requested feature: landscaping. The landscaping feature allows you to modify the ground itself, “controlling shape and colour to give you even more ways to build the farm of your dreams,” says developer Giants Software. From moving mountains to touching up the grass around your horse paddock, no topographical blemish, large or small, need persist on your farm unless you wish it to. The feature will be accessible at all times, but will cost in-game money to use.
