Farming Simulator 19 ploughs past two million sales

The latest iteration in Giants Software's Farming Simulator franchise has shifted over two million units.

That's according to the latest financial report of publisher Focus Home Interactive - for the twelve months ending March 31st, 2019 - which claims the title generated "record sales" for the company in addition to sailing past the two million sale mark.

The title sold over one million copies within ten days of its release, with just under half of these being on PC

Focus reiterated that Dotnod's Vampyr has shifted over one million units between June 2018 and the following April. 

For the 2018/19 financial year, Focus generated €126m ($143.4m). The firm has high hopes for the coming year, too, citing the success of World War Z - which sold two million copies within weeks of launch - as well as forthcoming sequels to The Surge and MudRunner. That's on top of 12 new projects that the publisher has signed.
