Bandai Namco and FromSoftware announced the sales numbers so far for Elden Ring, and we can probably now formally call it a success. The open world action RPG has sold more than 12 million copies in the world since its launch, as of March 14.
Turnover is made public in a new press release. The document also indicates that one million these sales were carried out in Japan, the only region where the Developer fromSoftware has self-published the game. It should also be noted that the figure includes both physical and digital sales, but We do not tell us what the distribution is. Anyway, although it is not officially mentioned, we can assume that this is the most sold game and certainly the fastest of society so far.
“It’s amazing how many people played in Elden Ring,” says Hidetaka Miyazaki. “We hope players will benefit from a high level of freedom when they venture into his vast world, will explore his many secrets and face his many threats. Thank you for your continued support. »
Bandai Namco, who published the game everywhere except Japan, is also satisfied with this news. The President and Chief Executive Officer, Yasuo Miyakawa, wants to “express my thanks to all our fans who brought [Elden Ring] in their life life,” said he is “very proud” of being involved.
In addition to impressive sales, the press release mentions a desire to extend the world of the game beyond, well, of the game. It seems that we will see more from Elden Ring, and we could see that manifest in other media, which is quite exciting. A Romanization of George Rr Martin, maybe?
