Image & Form indicated last week that SteamWorld Dig 2 was off to a fast start on Switch after only having been available for a couple of days. Today, the company shared more on the game’s strong debut.
Image & Form says that SteamWorld Dig 2 is the biggest launch in SteamWorld history. It has sold faster than any other game the team has made previously. Specifically on Switch, SteamWorld Dig 2 is “topping the charts in as good as every country.”
What’s most encouraging of all is that Image & Form has “already earned back most of the game’s total development budget.” That bodes well for the studio going forward.

SteamWorld Dig 2 sales off to a very strong start on Switch

SteamWorld Dig 2 has only been out for a few days, so it’s tough to make too much out of the game’s sales thus far. But with that said, it seems Image & Form is very happy with its performance thus far.
When one fan asked about SteamWorld Dig 2’s sales on Twitter, the developer responded:
I can't (or won't, doesn't matter) divulge actual figures, but #SWD2 has started way, way better than both the original Dig and SW Heist. ->

-> We have seen only the first-day sales on Switch… when we first saw the figures, we were sure we were reading them incorrectly. But…!!

This is definitely encouraging to hear. Hopefully SteamWorld Dig 2 continues to sell in the weeks and months to come.
