The chances for an Elden Ring sequel seem inevitable at this point.
Per Bandai Namco’s latest sales report, Elden Ring has managed to sell 16.6 million copies as of June 2022. This is an incredible number, even when compared to the performance of some of FromSoftware’s other best-selling games, including Dark Souls III.
Just to clarify since the wording seems to be confusing: ELDEN RING's total sales are 16.6 million *as* of June 2022— Nibel (@Nibellion) August 18, 2022
Here’s how some of FromSoftware’s other games have done based on data that Ars Technica shared in a report from earlier this year:
- Dark Souls: ~5 million copies sold
- Dark Souls III: 10 million copies sold
- Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice: ~5 million copies sold
Bandai Namco announced in March that Elden Ring had already reached 12 million units sold, shortly after its February 25 release date.
“It’s astonishing to see just how many people have been playing Elden Ring,” said Hidetaka Miyazaki, President and CEO/Director of FromSoftware. 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.”
