Developer Mundfish has announced that more than five million players have played its alternate-Soviet era shooter Atomic Heart since it launched on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Xbox Game Pass.
It’s been a little more than a month since Atomic Heart blasted onto consoles and PC, offering up a chaotic shooter based on an alternate version of the Soviet Union where robots have gone a bit wrong. The game’s developer, Mundfish, has now announced that the game surpassed five million players in its first three weeks.

Atomic Heart looks to be the latest success story to come from a game sitting among some of the best games on Game Pass, which celebrates reaching over five million players in under a month since release. Mundfish’s CEO Robert Bagratuni announced the impressive news on Twitter, reiterating that the team is now focused on improving the base game and actively working on DLC.
“We are thrilled with the overwhelming response to our first game. Our team has worked hard since 2017 to create a project that delivers the ultimate gaming experience, and we are delighted to see that Atomic Heart has resonated with gamers worldwide,” Bagratuni said. “Now work is underway to improve the overall gaming experience, as well as the active development of DLC to the game, in the process of which various opinions of the players are taken into account in order to make expansions as exciting as possible and surprise the players.”
This news follows the success of fellow Game Pass title Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, which managed to reach 15% more TrueAchievements players in its first week than Elden Ring, and squashed the top-performing Dark Souls game.
