We all knew Elden Ring was going to be a hit and not we’re a few weeks since the game launched, Bandai Namco has released some sales numbers for the first few weeks.
According to the PR that’s come in today, Elden Ring has sold a whopping 12 million copies since its launch last month. Congratulations to FromSoftware for achieving these numbers.
“It’s astonishing to see just how many people have been playing ELDEN RING. I’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks on behalf of the entire development team,” said Hidetaka Miyazaki, President and CEO/Director of FROMSOFTWARE. “ELDEN RING is based on a mythological story written by George R. R. Martin. We hope players enjoy a high level of freedom when adventuring through its vast world, exploring its many secrets, and facing up to its many threats. Thank you for your continued support.”
“Co-development between FromSoftware and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment has brought to life this new action-RPG, ELDEN RING, which has surpassed 12M units in sales worldwide,” added Yasuo Miyakawa, President and CEO of BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. “I would like to use this opportunity to give my thanks to all our fans who have brought ELDEN RING into their gaming life. I am very proud to have been involved in bringing such a wonderful and fantastic game to life with FromSoftware, under the guidance of Director Miyazaki, and with George R. R. Martin.
Much effort was placed into creating ELDEN RING in order to exceed the expectations of our fans worldwide. With a similar goal, we will continue our efforts in expanding the brand beyond the game itself and into everyone’s daily life. We will continue to create enjoyment and fulfilment through entertainment so that we can come closer and connect to our fans around the world.”
I have a feeling these sales numbers are going to keep climbing, this is one game that should make the GOTY shortlists at the end of 2022.
