Bohemia Interactive Reports Successful Year

Video Games

2019 was the busiest year in Bohemia Interactive's 20-year history with multiple game launches and DLC released, so it’s no surprise to see it was one of their most successful. Last year saw overall sales reach 68 million USD, with a total of 4.5 million copies of Bohemia Interactive games and DLC sold worldwide.

"2019 was
successful thanks to our years of ambitious development goals including
multiple games and DLCs for PC and console. Thanks to the dedication and
commitment of our colleagues we were able to release more game titles
in just one year than we have ever before. These launch successes are
reflected in outstanding financial results which will help Bohemia in
the upcoming years as we plan to develop new gaming experiences,"
 says Marek Španěl, CEO of Bohemia Interactive, regarding the results of 2019.

DAYZ – A BIG SUCCESS BOLSTERED BY CONSOLE RELEASES

The sale's highlight of 2019 was the online survival game DayZ (dayz.com),
which built upon the PC version's success by its release on PlayStation
4 and Xbox One. During the 2019, copies of the base game alone sold
over 1.1 million and have boosted lifetime units of DayZ (and its DLC)
to more than 5.8 million sales. The Livonia DLC received a positive
reception in the community and currently stands at around 400 thousand
copies sold.

ARMA 3 – STILL GOING STRONG AFTER 6 YEARS

The continued popularity of the long-standing, military franchise Arma (arma3.com)
also reinforced the year’s successes. During 2019, copies of Arma 3 –
along with its various DLCs – topped 2.6 million units sold, which
showcased the series’ enduring relevance, and brought the number of
lifetime base game sales to over 5.5 million and DLC sales up to 9.7
million.

VIGOR – EXPERIENCED BY 4 MILLION+ PLAYERS

After a year of being in the Game Preview program, the Xbox One exclusive, free-to-play, loot 'n' shooter title, Vigor (vigorgame.com),
was released. This nontraditional game, based in post-war Norway,
caught the eye of many international players with its distinctive genre
and style. Before releasing as a free-to-play version, the game was
tried by 700 thousand players. Now, more than 4 million have jumped in
to play, with numbers climbing daily – mainly thanks to a steady stream
of feedback from the community, which continually helps shape the
upcoming content for Vigor.

YLANDS – IS NOW FREE FOR PC AND MOBILE

Another game which left its Early Access version is Ylands (ylands.com),
a creative platform for PC and mobile phones. In 2020, Ylands will
receive a few major updates. General polishing and feature progression
remain an ongoing priority, and a lot of exciting additions – which will
unleash Ylands' full potential – are on the horizon.

BOHEMIA INTERACTIVE AND ITS NEW TECHNOLOGY

At
the end of 2019, Bohemia Interactive celebrated its 20th birthday in
the best possible way: successfully finishing all in-development titles
(along with excellent sales). The year 2020 will be a revolutionary year
for Bohemia Interactive and its games – Bohemia will introduce their
new technology called Enfusion, which will be the core of Bohemia's
future games.
