Farming Simulator 22 PS5 PS4

When editor Sammy Barker is out of the office, it’s up to another Push Square employee to cover everything with the word ‘Simulator’ in the name. To that end, here’s an update on Farming Simulator 22: it’s sold in excess of 1.5 million copies in one week.

This is a significant milestone for developer Giants Software; this is the first game in the series to be self-released, firstly. The team will therefore be doubly pleased that this PlayStation 5 and PS4 title has now set a series record for most sales in the first seven days.

There is definitely something to be said for games like this, which turn petty, even boring jobs into satisfying, relaxing pastimes. Farming Simulator has reached the point where it has many licensed vehicles and products from the world of agriculture, and even boasts an annual convention where fans enjoy updates on the franchise.

Boris Stefan, acting head of publishing at Giants Software, seems to be pleased with the growth of the series: “The first success of this first week and the good feedback we received from players proves: Farming Simulator is going in the right direction,” he says .
