Square Enix and FuturLab have revealed that the cult indie smash hit PowerWash Simulator has reached 7 million players around the world. This figure presumably takes into account both sales for the game and players who have checked it out on Game Pass, although the devs don't specify.

In a Twitter thread posted earlier today, PowerWash Simulator developer FuturLab thanks its players for supporting them through the game's Early Access phase. The studio promises that "so much more" is coming to the game throughout the rest of the year, which is exciting news if you're one of the seven million PowerWash Simulator players.

The upcoming roadmap for PowerWash Simulator includes a paid DLC pack and a physical version of the game in the second quarter of 2023, as well as the recent Muckingham Files update. Q3 2023 will see the launch of more free content and paid DLC, as well as "exciting news", while Q4 rounds off the year with more paid DLC and "seasonal content". Will we get to wash Santa's sleigh? We can but hope.

It's going to be a busy year for PowerWash Simulator.

This news also comes not long after the appointment of a brand new CFO for FuturLab. His name is Steve Tinkler, which feels particularly appropriate for PowerWash Simulator, and he's got experience working with companies like Epic and Fall Guys developer Mediatonic. What will his appointment mean for FuturLab? COO Chris Mehers says Tinkler's arrival is "another sign of the strides we're taking as a fast-growing self-funded studio". Exciting times are ahead, it seems.

PowerWash Simulator is available right now on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. It's continuing to receive a raft of free updates, including one back in February that added missions based on iconic locations and elements from Final Fantasy VII. In their somewhat lukewarm review, TechRaptor's very own Samiee "Gutterpunk" Tee described the game as "one mechanic polished well enough to get by for a short while". Stay tuned for more info on PowerWash Simulator's plans for the future.
