Since its launch in 2018, Subnautica has sold more than 6 million copies across PC, Xbox, and PlayStation. With the early-access version of its sequel, Subnautica: Below Zero, hitting #1 on Steam and its much-hyped recent launch on Nintendo Switch™, the franchise has gone from indie darling to mainstream smash hit.
