It's been a long road for Crate Entertainment's Grim Dawn, but after years of loving development, polish and a stint in Early Access, the game has hit the massive milestone of one million copies sold, according to the studio.
Crate Entertainment first announced Grim Dawn, a Diablo-like RPG using Titan Quest's engine, in January 2010. Two years later, they collected over half a million dollars with a successful Kickstarter campaign, and later put the game on Early Access in 2013. Now, after half a dozen years, Grim Dawn is getting released.

Crate Entertainment's Grim Dawn, currently on Early Access, was yesterday updated to include its long-awaited multiplayer functionality, though you should prepare for a few teething problems, according to the developer.
