Elden Ring, the open-world dark fantasy action-RPG by From Software and George R.R. Martin, continues to sell exceedingly well. According to an earnings report publisher Bandai Namco, the game managed to ship 13.4 million units as of 31 March. This is a full 1.4 million units more than the reported 12 million units which were sold by 16 March.
Bandai Namco revealed in their latest earnings report that Elden Ring remains one of its best-selling games in recent memory. In just under a month, the action-RPG managed to ship an impressive 12 million units, securing it as the fastest-selling game in From Software’s history. This was the result of clever marketing, high anticipation and the game generally being phenomenal.
In the last stretch of March, Bandai Namco managed to ship 1.4 million more units. Since April, it’s hard to say how much sales have picked up on Elden Ring, but we imagine it might’ve crossed the 14 million mark already.
Thanks to a devoted community, Elden Ring still manages to stay on radars until today. The speedrunning community continues to break world records on a regular basis, while modders are having fun delivering everything from making the game easier (or harder) to a nude mod. The game was also praised on the level of Skyrim or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for being a highly influential title for future video games.
To put into perspective how monumental Elden Ring‘s success is, Dark Souls III was previously Bandai Namco’s fastest-selling From Software title, selling 3 million copies in one month – a feat that Elden Ring managed to easily surpass in less than a few weeks. Meanwhile, it took Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice around four months to cross the 5 million copies sold mark.
Elden Ring is currently available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
