Garry Newman, Facepunch Studios founder, has announced that Rust has sold over 750,000 copies in a month and a half. Earlier this month, we reported that Rust had sold 150,000 copies in just two weeks.
Before Rust, Facepunch Studios was known for creating Garry’s Mod which helped create games such as Portal, Left 4 Dead, and many more. However, Rust may quickly leave Garry’s Mod in its wake as Newman announced that Rust “has already made us 2/3rds the amount of money that Garry’s Mod has made in 8 years.”
For those of you who have been living under a rock, Rust is a survival game and was released on December 11 of last year. It is available on Steam for $19.99.
