Boris Stefan, Head of Publishing at GIANTS Software, expresses his delight at the immense popularity of Farming Simulator 22, stating,
“Seeing millions of virtual farmers active on our fields is a heartening affirmation of our enduring passion, ongoing commitment to the series, and self-publishing strategy. Our unique community reflects the same level of passion and dedication, growing further each day.”
The astounding sales figures not only reflect the game’s widespread appeal but also underscore the success of GIANTS Software’s strategic decision to self-publish Farming Simulator 22.
A significant contributor to Farming Simulator 22’s appeal lies in its rich ecosystem of modifications, commonly known as mods. The game has surpassed its predecessor in terms of available mods, boasting an impressive collection of over 5,600 modifications accessible through the official ModHub.
The ModHub has become a hub of creativity for the Farming Simulator community, serving as a platform for user-generated content that continues to flourish. The modding community’s dedication is evident in the staggering statistic of 1.4 billion downloads, representing approximately half of all mod downloads in the series since its inception in 2008.
Farming Simulator has evolved beyond the solitary experience of tending virtual fields to become a thriving multiplayer community. GIANTS Software reports an all-time high in server activity, with over 100,000 dedicated servers online simultaneously.
