The launch of Deep Rock Galactic on PlayStation Plus was critical to its success ...

According to Soren Lundgaard, the CEO of the Ghost Ship Games team, the PlayStation Plus launch was crucial to enable a Deep Rock Galactic Of to thrive in the mainstream market, as well as in terms of global visibility for the intellectual property in question.

Even Ghost Ship Games has jumped into the group of teams and developers who stated that they were extremely satisfied with their games' performance as a result of subscription services. In this case we are talking about Deep Rock Galactic, a particular sci-fi shooter with fantasy elements and a cooperative structure, that has received surprising attention from the developers thanks to PlayStation Plus.

Lundgaard's remarks during a recent meeting with Embracer Group, the company that acquired the team, sparked speculation. "We've broken all of our records in terms of players and revenues," said Lundgaard on Deep Rock Galactic Season 1. "It paved the way for where we are right now with Deep Rock."

The fact that the game was released on PlayStation Plus on its first day has allowed a large number of gamers to have access to a game that otherwise might have had a difficult time establishing due to its small scale of development. Developers also started to see a strong income stream from DLC and cosmetic items to payment.

Deep Rock Galactic was downloaded by ten million players shortly after its release on PS Plus, much of whom also made purchases. In 2022, Ghost Ship Games reported that the average number of players was 113,700, significantly more than in 2021, when the game was released on Xbox Game Pass. Last June it sold more than four million copies.
