Cuphead Sells 2 Million Copies, Exceeding Developer's Wildest Dreams

The gorgeous Xbox One and PC game has reached an impressive new sales milestone.


Cuphead, the gorgeous, very difficult indie platformer from StudioMDHR, has reached a new sales milestone. It's now sold 2 million copies across PC and Xbox One, the studio announced in a blog post today. This is up from 1 million sales after its first two weeks following the game's long-awaited launch at the end of September.

In its blog post, StudioMDHR said it could have never imagined Cuphead would do so well. "Even in our wildest dreams, we never thought our crazy little characters would be embraced by this many fans from around the world and we are continuously humbled by your support," the developer said.

StudioMDHR did not provide a sales breakdown by platform, so we don't know the mix between Xbox One and PC. Cuphead was developed and published by StudioMDHR with support from Microsoft, which is why it is exclusive to PC and Xbox One. The game will never, ever come to PS4.

There is no word as of yet if Cuphead will get a sequel or any follow-on content, but given the game has been a commercial hit, we would expect something to follow.
