Factor exceeds 2.5 million copies sold

An expansion is in the publisher's plans
#Indie Published by MarK, on .

Wube Software recently released update 1.1 for Factorio, its PC factory builder, and added a number of improvements. This includes a renewed GUI for trains, allowing Spidertrons to follow each other, and the much-requested Blueprint Flip. What's next for the studio?

In a new blog post, the studio stated that version 1.1 was the final update for the base game.

It will be maintained, so bug fixes, simple modding interface additions or minor tweaks can happen, but that's about it.

In discussing the various ways in which Factorio could be expanded, the studio ended up agreeing to an expansion package.

It's too early to show any of the plans, and as we want to keep the process of expanding the things that have proven to be the most fun, we don't have a fixed plan.

In terms of when the release is expected, Wube Software says it will not take “less than a year to develop”.

Finally, the developer announced that Factorio has sold more than 2.5 million copies to date. From its crowdfunding campaign in 2013 to its early access launch in 2016, it has been a long journey for the title. Version 1.0 was released last year and included a number of important new additions, including the aforementioned Spidertrons. As for what will come in the expansion, stay tuned for more details in the coming days.

I like several different works, but with a tendency for strange and funny stories.

I like arts, games, drawings and interesting things.
