Publisher Bandai Namco has announced that RPG Elden Ring has now sold over 12 million units since launch.

The news continues the runaway success of the latest FromSoftware title since the game’s release a few weeks ago. The new milestone brings with it a comment from the game’s director and CEO of FromSoftware, Hidetaka Miyazaki. ““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.”

Bandai Namco president Yasuo Miyakawa also offered his own message of gratitude. “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.”

Miyakawa also alluded to Bandai Namco having big plans for the series going forward. “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.”

Just yesterday, it transpired that Elden Ring is the biggest new gaming IP since the launch of The Division in 2016. The game is available now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC. If you’ve not read our review yet, you can fix that oversight here.
