Farming Simulator 22 sold over 1.5 million copies during its first week on shelves. The latest iteration of the agricultural sim is the first to be self-published by Swiss developer Giants Software.
Since launching on November 22, 2021, the title has achieved an all-time peak of 105,636 concurrent players on Steam (according to SteamDB), and most recently experienced a 24-hour peak of 83,991 concurrent players.
Farming Simulator 22 is also available on console platforms including PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S, and Google Stadia.
Giants Software CEO Christian Ammann said the decision to self-publish Farming Simulator 22 allowed the studio to more effectively work with international distributors to ensure its strategic goals were met.
"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," commented Ammann. "The great collaboration with our partners ensured a fantastic launch."
