Everspace 2 has launched after 5 years in development with over 300,000 copies sold so far and review rankings of over 80%, Rockfish Games are celebrating it as very successful.
“This has been a fantastic launch for Rockfish games, our biggest yet! The team’s done an amazing job, and we’re now reaping the fruits of our hard work of the past five years and beyond. We hit our commercial goals in terms of product visibility, game downloads, and net revenue,” says ROCKFISH Games CEO Michael Schade. “Even more rewarding is seeing our amazing community and space fans in the media love what we’ve built. This paints a bright future for our studio and Everspace as a franchise. We have so much more planned, and I can’t wait for us to share what we’ve been working on for our first free update later this year and the massive expansion coming in the second half of 2024.”
Thanks to the exceptional visuals of more than 100 handcrafted locations worth exploring, intense combat, deep customization, and RPG mechanics, space game enthusiasts from all over the world are eager to show their adventures online by sharing stunning screenshots and gameplay clips on social media.
“We’ve seen hundreds of content creators streaming and making videos on Twitch, YouTube, and other platforms over the last week,” continues Schade. “Iconic creators with a deep love for space, shooter, and roleplaying games like CohhCarnage, Skill Up, and ObsidianAnt to name a few have all given incredibly enthusiastic thumbs up in multiple streams and videos.”
With the console launch on Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 coming this summer including a physical Deluxe Edition published by Maximum Games, ROCKFISH Games has already started work on the game’s first major free update planned for later this year.
