Bandai Namco has revealed that Elden Ring, the open-world RPG game developed by From Software, has sold a staggering 20.5 million copies since launching in February 2022. The figures represent a rise of 500,000 units since Bandai Namco last reported sales. To put the number into perspective, Elden Ring’s sales numbers are significantly higher than other titles released around the same time, such as Kirby And the Forgotten Land, which has sold around 5.27 million units. Horizon Forbidden West, the AAA sequel to SONY’s Horizon Zero Dawn, has sold around 8.4 million since its release. It is also worth noting that From Software’s trilogy of Dark Souls games has sold around 33 million units combined.
Despite Elden Ring’s slowing sales numbers, developer From Software is still committed to providing more content for the popular game. The studio has already announced that Elden Ring’s first DLC, Shadow of the Erdtree, is currently in development. Kadokawa Corporation, which has a majority stake in From Software, has said that it is “pursuing the maximization of profit” by continuing to support the Elden Ring IP via DLC releases. There are currently no details on what the DLC will involve, and it does not yet have an official release date.
New Game from From Software
From Software’s next game will be Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, the latest installment in its long-running mech action series. Set to be released on August 25, Kadokawa Corporation expects the game’s release to further expand From Software’s fan base.
Elden Ring has become an iconic game that has broken multiple records since its release. Elden Ring’s enchanting gameplay, fantastic storyline, and captivating visuals have drawn an enthusiastic crowd of gamers worldwide. According to Bandai Namco, every person in the state of New York could own a copy of the game, and the figures reveal that Elden Ring is on track to attain even more striking milestones.
What’s Next for Elden Ring?
As the game continues to grow and evolve, From Software has left its fans eager to see what the future holds for Elden Ring. Perhaps future DLC releases will add to the game’s already substantial storyline or provide exciting new challenges for players to tackle. Whatever the future holds, Elden Ring’s impressive milestone of 20.5 million copies sold is a testament to the game’s success and the remarkable work that From Software has put into its development.
