Today, Bohemia Interactive announced how much money they made in 2019. Spoiler alert: it's a lot, and DayZ was a big reason why they made so much money.

In fact, 2019 was Bohemia's biggest year, with multiple games launching and some DLC released. Overall sales reached $68 million, with a total of 4.5 million copies of Bohemia Interactive games and DLC sold worldwide.

 

"2019 was successful thanks to our years of ambitious development goals including multiple games and DLCs for PC and console. Thanks to the dedication and commitment of our colleagues we were able to release more game titles in just one year than we have ever before. These launch successes are reflected in outstanding financial results which will help Bohemia in the upcoming years as we plan to develop new gaming experiences," says Marek Španěl, CEO of Bohemia Interactive, regarding the results of 2019.

Bohemia Interactive's sales for 2019.

DayZ--with its success built upon its release on consoles--sold 1.1 million units and boosted lifetime sales of it and its DLC to 5.8 million sales, with the Livonia DLC receiving a positive reception overall and reaching 400,000 copies sold.

 
 

ARMA 3 is still going strong, selling 2.6 million units (along with its DLC), with total sales reaching 5.5 million and DLC sales up to 9.7 million.

Ylands--a creative platform for PC and mobile phones--launched in 2020 and received a few major updates. More polishing and features are on the way, including other, "exciting additions" that are coming sooner or later.

 
 

Bohemia Interactive also announced that they would be debuting their new engine Enfusion in 2020, which is planned to be the "core" of all their future games. Perhaps this means ARMA 4 is going to be announced soon? We'll see.
