Palworld developer Pocket Pair has just shared its content and update roadmap for the early access megahit, Palworld, which has already managed the incredible feat of racking up over eight million sales in its first six days of release – despite an initial wave of controversy and online discourse around similarities between some of the game’s Pals and Pokémon.
It seems that any blowback hasn’t stifled Pocket Pair’s ambitions, although yesterday did bring about the news that The Pokémon Company is actively investigating the situation now, because the studio has a big list of upcoming updates and content on the way for Palworld in the form of a new roadmap.
#Palworld has sold over 8 million copies in less than 6 days!
The roadmap includes a number of highly-requested features for the near and far future, including improvements to key binding and Pal AI coming “ASAP” along with things like PvP, crossplay, new Pals and more coming later down the track. The roadmap doesn’t do much to address the discrepancies between the Steam and Xbox/Microsoft Store versions of the game, but the developers have previously said that they’re at the mercy of Microsoft’s certification in that regard.
“We would like to share with you our roadmap for Palworld,” Pocket Pair said in a post on X. “Sales have far exceeded the development team’s expectations, and we are currently experiencing many problems due to excessive access congestion, among other challenges. We will prioritize improving this issue first, and then move on to implementing new in-game features. Thank you for your understanding.”
