The CEO of Slime Rancher 2 dev Monomi Park has taken to Twitter to share the team's sheer surprise at how well the game is performing commercially so far. Despite only being in Early Access at present, and launching on Xbox Game Pass, Slime Rancher 2 sold 100k copies in less than six hours.
The dev said it was hoping it could get close to that kind of number within a day, so it seems to have smashed that goal by a good margin already!
When we sat down with the developer ahead of launch, they said that launching in Xbox Game Pass was "an easy decision", due to the service's guaranteed player numbers. The additional financial security that comes with a Game Pass launch will no-doubt help as well, on top of these impressive sales numbers.
