Elden Ring is, Unsurprisingly, a Hit; Sells 12 Million Units

FromSoftware and Bandai Namco have released a press release to announce that Elden Ring has sold 1 million units in Japan, and 12 million units worldwide. This is a major accomplishment, especially for this genre. It took Dark Souls 3 a whole four years to sell ten million copies, so 12 million in less than a month is nothing short of astonishing.

As a FromSoftware and George R.R. Martin collaboration, this success may come as no surprise to many who have eagerly anticipated the game’s release. Even now, Elden Ring is currently ranked as the 38th best game of all time on MetaCritic, which is no small feat.

Hidetaka Miyazaki, CEO and Director of FromSoftware, commented on the news, saying: “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. 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.”
