Smashing Total War records from all angles, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS is now the fastest selling and most popular game in the entire franchise.
Creative Assembly announced the milestone yesterday, with over one million copies sold in the first week. The player-count is doing exceptionally well too, with the current all-time peak hitting well over 190,000. Pretty amazing really, since Feral Interactive got the Linux port out on the same day as the Windows version. Considering our much smaller market share, that's awesome.
I actually reached out to Feral Interactive, to see what they thought about the Linux sales of Total War: THREE KINGDOMS so far but they declined to comment. I wouldn't go reading into that as a negative though, they've never commented before when asked but I thought perhaps they might have in this case. Hopefully sales are good enough for future day-1 one releases of titles like this, sure would be nice.
I'm really not surprised it's selling so well though, especially since Steam has been rising in the Asian markets and with the Chinese theme it's obviously a good match. It's also a very fun game, easily the most fun I've ever personally had in a Total War game. Previous games have bit a bit of a push to get me to load them back up, with Total War: THREE KINGDOMS though I'm genuinely excited each time I go back to it.
