Elden Ring has taken over the gaming world in terms of overall conversation ever since its release. The game topped the NPD charts for the month of February, obtained high praise from fans and critics alike, and has gained massive attention across social media.
While we know the game did well in sales, we didn’t have an exact number until recently. According to PR directly from FromSoftware, Elden Ring has sold over 12 million units worldwide with over 1 million units coming from Japan.
President/CEO & Director of FromSoftware, Hidetaka Miyazaki, and President/CEO of Bandai Namco, Yasuo Miyakawa both released statements on the news of the sales.
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.
