The announcement on X (formerly Twitter) disclosed that Kingdom Come: Deliverance has surpassed the milestone of 6 million copies sold worldwide. Warhorse Studios thanked the players, acknowledging their pivotal role in the game’s success.

Initially launched on February 13, 2018, Kingdom Come: Deliverance garnered positive feedback from critics, earning average Metascores ranging from 68 (Xbox) to 76 (PC). The game also achieved a peak of 96,069 concurrent players on Steam and maintains an 82% rating based on over 89,000 user reviews. While available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms, precise sales distribution among these platforms remains undisclosed.

Founded in 2011 by Czech developers Daniel Vávra and Martin Klíma, Warhorse Studios emerged as a notable player in the game industry. Vávra, renowned for his work on the Mafia series, initiated the studio after departing Illusion Softworks due to disagreements with the company’s management post-acquisition by Take-Two in 2008.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance, first teased in 2012, gained momentum through crowdfunding on Kickstarter and the studio’s website, amassing over $2 million in total funding. In 2019, Embracer Group’s subsidiary Koch Media (now Plaion) acquired Warhorse for €42.8 million, signaling a significant milestone in the studio’s journey.
