DREDGE came to Switch on March 30th, 2023, giving the game 6+ months of time to find an audience. Developer Black Salt is happy to reveal that not only did the game find an audience, it managed to surpass expectations by an incredible amount.
In that 6+ months on the market, DREDGE has managed to sell over 1 million units across all platforms combined. According to DREDGE producer Nadia Thorne, internal projections had the game hitting 100k sold in its first year, and that was actually the studio’s top estimate. Clearly, Black Salt didn’t know just how much their game would resonate with players.
Things get even crazier for DREDGE, as the game managed to surpass that 100,000 high-water mark within the first 24 hours of launch. What was Black Salt doing when the game achieved that goal? They all were celebrating the game’s launch…on a boat!
