Euro Truck Simulator 2 celebrated ten years on the market a couple of days ago, and via their blog they shared some interesting numbers from this strangely popular simulator. They themselves write that the game's success and placement on top lists in connection with the release in autumn 2012 came as a surprise. The shock continued with the release on Steam a few months later, where it also became a bestseller.
Since then, 13 million copies of the game have been sold, and on top of that they have managed to churn out 80 million pieces of DLC. However, it should be added that these DLCs don't just include mediocre expansions with whole new lands to explore and the like, but also smaller things, like special paint jobs for the trucks. Those are still impressive numbers, and surely it's fun when something so niche becomes a huge thing?
They also say that they hope the game will live for ten more years and that there are many features they still want to implement, which may not sound so promising to people who are hungry for a proper sequel.
