Grim Dawn's development process has not been easy, and that's putting things lightly. It was announced before Path of Exile and Diablo 3 were even specs on the horizon, yet has only managed to release quite some time after both of them. On the positive side, all of the wait ended up being worth it as Grim Dawn is not only a faithful successor to Titan Quest, but also an enjoyable game in its own right.

As such, I am more than happy to announce that Grim Dawn has now sold over one million copies on PC, as well as over 200k copies of the Crucible arena mode DLC! Here's what the developers had to say about their rather impressive milestone:

"It’s crazy to think that this success story somehow arose from such humble and uncertain beginnings, overcoming so many setbacks and challenges. I repeatedly questioned what I was doing those first three, hard years of development. Looking back, I think the only thing that kept me going on the bad days, was the responsibility I felt to see it through, for the people who had invested time in the project and those who supported us early on through our website. Even with that drive to see it through, no matter my doubts, the later support of thousands more backers on Kickstarter and Early Access, validated what we were doing and gave us a real shot at making the dream a reality.

It was still a long road and lot of sweat and tears, from the 2012 Kickstarter to our 2016 release but I had the great fortune to find amazing teammates who made that journey a lot easier and the game much better than it could have been otherwise. Much thanks must also go to my long-time friends “Rhis,” “Jmack” and Brian Parnell (now working on his own project Praey for the Gods) – without their early help; Grim Dawn may have never got off the ground.

Since the release of Grim Dawn, the Crate team has grown to 14 developers. We’re now working to finish up the Grim Dawn expansion and, because we can never seem to make things easy on ourselves, we’ve started some other projects as well.

We’re looking forward to getting the Grim Dawn expansion into the hands of fans and we can’t wait to share news about our future projects. Until then, keep perfecting your builds, collecting those crafting mats, making morally questionable quest choices and remember it’s not healthy to spend too much time in the void!" 

In celebration of this milestone the developers have also marked Grim Dawn 50% off, so if you ever wanted to get in on the action now would be the chance to do so. You can learn more, or just grab yourself a copy, by heading over to either the official website or Steam. Have fun!
