The Plague Tale franchise has quickly become a favorite among fans of narrative-driven games.
With a heartfelt story of two siblings, this series of games has been praised for its beautiful post-apocalyptic world, extraordinary visuals, and a narrative that shows the bond of protagonists Hugo and Amica.
As a major success for Asobo Studio, 2022’s A Plague Tale: Requiem has no shortage of accolades. In addition to various positive reviews, the game has now reached over 3 million players worldwide.
Why it matters: Unlike other big hitters from 2022, A Plague Tale: Requiem was made by a small team with a limited budget. Therefore, this is a major milestone for the developer, which paves the way for more impressive productions in the future.
A heartfelt thank you to the 3 million players who embarked on the haunting journey of #APlagueTaleRequiem! Your support and passion mean everything to us.

This new milestone was just announced by publisher Focus Entertainment. To celebrate this milestone, Focus Entertainment has thanked the players and looks forward to collaborating with developer Asobo Studio again.
Initially, A Plague Tale: Requiem sold a million copies at launch. These results were considered impressive for a day-one Game Pass release that competed with massive titles like Elden Ring and God of War Ragnarok in 2022.
It also found success on Game Pass, becoming the third most popular game on the service in no time. While the latest milestone has come much later than expected, it shows that Asobo Studio’s work is still being recognized.
The publisher confirms that it is working with Asobo Studio for a new project. With previous job listings pointing to another Plague Tale title, players will likely revisit this universe again in the coming years.
Following the success of A Plague Tale: Innocence and Requiem, a third entry is likely to receive more attention and care. Therefore, the franchise is expected to reach new heights in the future.
Thank you! Please share your positive feedback. 🔋
