Yesterday Bandai Namco announced that Elden Ring has reached 12 million units sold which is usaully a thin for such game as GTA or Call of Duty. It looks like From Software’s ‘Souls’ formula has finally hit critical mass.
Here are some blurbs from their press release:
“BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. and FromSoftware Inc. today announced that their new action-RPG game ELDEN RING has reached 12 million units sold worldwide*, confirming a fantastic start for the new franchise.”
“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.
