In the post, the developer cites several options for the future of the management game. According to Wube, the game is too ‘niche’ to get ‘forever free updates’ and a full sequel to the game is ‘the opposite’ of what the developer wants to do.
Since the developer is also not a fan of several small dlc extensions, it promises to develop one big extension. Details and a release date are not yet known, but development is expected to take longer than a year.
Finally, Wube Software also shares some game, now that the game has been out of early access for a few months. For example, 2.5 million copies were sold, 799,000 YouTube videos about Factorio were made and the game was played on Steam for a total of 87,800 years.
Factorio is now available on Steam.
