The multiplayer survival game Valheim has been causing a stir for some time. The early access phase on Steam only started this month, but shortly afterwards more than three million copies were sold.
The number of players on Steam has also exploded, and it is also very popular on the Twitch streaming platform. However, behind the project is not a huge studio, but a team that consists of just five people.
This comes from an interview by PC Gamer magazine with the studio founder Henrik Törnqvist.
According to him, the early access version of Valheim was actually only developed by five employees. But due to the great success and the increasing expectations that came with it, that will change very soon. The team is currently planning to expand.
“We’re going to hire some people, definitely. We’re in the process of getting that process going. Yes, we’ll have more people to do all of this as we’ve now reached our limits in what we can do.”
How many additional employees the Iron Gate team wants to hire is not revealed in the interview. What is certain is that the studio has big plans for the future of Valheim.
The early access phase should run for at least one year. During this time the fans can look forward to new content, features and much more. More specific details and dates are not yet known.
So far, only five people have worked on the Valheim survival game.
