The success of FromSoftware’s RPG Elden Ring continues unabashed, with the game now boasting 13.4 million sales worldwide.
That’s according to publisher Bandai Namco’s latest financial reports released last night (As spotted by Eurogamer). In fact, it’s extra impressive, as these figures only cover up to March 31 of this year. A previous announcement, made midway through March, declared the game had made 12 million sales. Therefore, the game shifted a further 1.4 million copies in less than two weeks.
Elden Ring, which only released back in February, still has a little way to go to match the series sales record of Dark Souls. Back in 2020, Bandai Namco declared the series as a whole had reached 27 million sales. However, that number is of course across nearly ten years, three main titles and a remastered version of the first game.
So what about the future then? Current rumours are still swirling about potential DLC, although no such confirmation has yet been made by either developer FromSoftware or Bandai Namco. A sequel probably looks likely, with the publisher pledging to continue “expanding the brand beyond the game itself and into everyone’s daily life.”
We quite enjoyed our time with Elden Ring. Josh said in his review “There are no other dynamics quite like it in games; they acquaint us with an array of miseries and charge us money for the privilege.” You can read the rest of his words right over here.
