Matt Thorson, from Mattmakesgames.com and the lead developer of Celeste, announced some fantastic news for the title today. Beyond the terrific success it has had critically, it has also sold more than 500,000 copies to date. This is in addition of course to the news that it will be featured on Xbox as a free Game with Gold throughout January.
We're working on some farewell Celeste levels, which should be ready in early 2019. They're very hard. And we'll be announcing what's next for us in the new year as well. See you in 2019 🙂

Celeste has had quite the run in 2018. It took home multiple 10s from major outlets, was featured alongside titles such as Red Dead Redemption 2 and God of War as a Game of the Year nominee, will be an Xbox Game with Gold in January, and is selling well on top of all of it. It’s fantastic to see an indie title have such an impact on the industry. Congrats to the team!
