The hardcore and realistic 15th century RPG, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is off to a strong start in sales. The game, which released Tuesday, has reportedly sold over 500,000 copies and is one of the top sellers on Steam at the moment.
That’s very strong start for a niche game that was Kickstarted, and face widespread complaints from “racism” and “sexism” from SJW’s offended at the game’s historical accuracy (you play as white guy in a white country). There were even people who wanted others to boycott the game because of it. I hate to compare two completely different games, but it’s pretty humorous that a well established franchise from a top publisher, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus from Bethesda, sold only 319,000 in its first week. That game was heavily praised by SJW’s. Hopefully developers going forward stop trying to cater to the SJW types and leave their social justice political agendas out of video games.
Meanwhile, for those half a million people playing and enjoying the game despite some bugs, Warhorse Studios promises that a fix for the numerous bugs is coming in a patch that should be released in two weeks.
UPDATE 2/25: The game has sold over one million copies now.
