'Elden Ring' Reaches Staggering Number Of Sales In Just Six Months

'Elden Ring' Reaches Staggering Number Of Sales In Just Six Months

The latest sales figures are in, and Elden Ring is continuing to sell a huge amount of copies, months on from its release.

FromSoftware’s big ol’ open world blockbuster has done it again. When Elden Ring released back in February (is it just me, or does that feel like forever ago now?) it was quite apparent that it was going to be in the running for game of the year - when a title gets that many 10/10 reviews, it can’t not be. 

While you're here, take a look at some cursed (but hilarious) Elden Ring mods below.

It wasn’t just the review scores that were exceptionally high though, so were sales figures. It holds the title for the fastest selling Soulsborne title, and smashed Bandai Namco’s expectations by selling 13.4 million copies by the end of March - the publisher had predicted that it’d sell around 4 million. Not bad going, huh?

Well, in the words of Smash Mouth, the sales start coming and they don’t stop coming. Or something like that, anyway. As reported by Eurogamer, the latest digital and physical figures are in, and Elden Ring has now reached 16.6 million sales across the globe, which is absolutely huge.

It was already quite easily the best-selling FromSoftware game - their previous best was Dark Souls 3, which had racked up 10 million sales by May 2020, four years after its release. Also, the total combined sales of the entire Dark Souls franchise (including Demon’s Souls) is 27 million, which Elden Ring is now over halfway towards, single handedly. 

How many of those millions of players have beaten the game with a dance mat, though? If I were a betting person, I wouldn’t say that it’d be many.
