Paradox also said their were 68,000 simultaneous players on the day of release which overtook Cities: Skylines, one of the titles they published, for the record of highest amount of concurrent players at launch.
”Stellaris breaks a lot of new ground for Paradox Development Studio," said Henrik Fåhraeus, Game Director of Stellaris in the statement. "It is a type of game we have never attempted to do before, and we are immensely satisfied to see this leap of faith work out well, especially with all the positive response we are getting from the players.”
