Subnautica, the studio’s breakout hit, was released in early access in 2014, and would eventually come to all platforms. The most recent release is a Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series triumvirate.

The game had sold more than five million copies as of January 2020, with a re-emergence in popularity during the pandemic, largely attributed to streamers, increasing that number greatly.
