"I'm so proud of the team and the prospering environment it thrives in," Christian Ammann, Giants Software CEO, said.

"Being able to successfully build international structures to transfer an already huge series like Farming Simulator into a self-published brand with new impulses is not to take for granted. The great collaboration with our partners ensured a fantastic launch."

Acting head of publishing Boris Stefan added: “The initial success of this first week and the great feedback we got from players proves: Farming Simulator is going in the right direction. Our plan to lead and manage all aspects of publishing communications to achieve the company's strategic goals was met“.
