Fatshark Games has announced that rat-tastic sequel Warhammer: Vermintide 2 on PC has sold over 500,000 copies since its debut on March 8. 

Console owners will still get their slice of the limb-dismembering action, with the game due to hit PS4 and Xbox One at a later date. For now though, its developer is giving itself a firm pat on the pack for its success with the PC version. 

'We are proud and happy that gamers worldwide have taken Warhammer: Vermintide 2 to their hearts,' beamed Fatshark's CEO, Martin Wahlund. '500,000 games sold was a milestone that we had, but not less than a week after release.'

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 expands on its predecessor by offering a more flexible career path and the new Contracts feature, as players band together to take on the combined might of the chaos army and Skaven forces. 

A release date for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has yet to be announced.
