Publisher Bandai Namco and developer FromSoftware announced the action RPG, Elden Ring, has sold over 12 million units worldwide and one million units in Japan as of March 14. The figure includes physical and digital units.

"It's astonishing to see just how many people have been playing Elden Ring," said FromSoftware CEO and Director Hidetaka Miyazaki. "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."

Bandai Namco President and CEO Yasuo Miyakawa added, "I would like to use this opportunity to give my thanks to all our fans who have brought Elden Ring into their gaming life. I am very proud to have been involved in bringing such a wonderful and fantastic game to life with FromSoftware, under the guidance of Director Miyazaki, and with George R. R. Martin.

"Much effort was placed into creating Elden Ring so that we could exceed the expectations of our fans worldwide. In like manner, we will continue our efforts in expanding the brand beyond the game itself, and into everyone’s daily life.

"We will continue to create enjoyment and fulfillment through entertainment, so that we can come closer and connect to our fans around the world."

Elden Ring released for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 25, 2022.

Those are some insane numbers. Congrats to FromSoftware.



Damn, that's huge, Pokémon-like numbers in a very short time.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

Physical it barely sold 200k on Playstation in Japan. Digital must be pretty high. My bad it sold around 350k on Playstation first 2 weeks

Fromsoft’s audience is increasingly PC centric. In Europe about 50% of Elden Ring’s sales were PC, which is astonishing for a major AAA release and especially one that is part of a series that is closely associated with the consoles. 



Data as of March 14th and is shipped + digital downloads (both footnotes in the Press Release).



I haven't played it yet, since I'm not a Souls fan, but those are some seriously good numbers.



I have a Youtube channel... A Twitter, and... Yeah.

I was talking Japan. It sold 350k on Playstation first 2 weeks so should be at least 400k when fromsoft announced 1 million in Japan. I'm guessing at least another 300k digital for Playstation so that's 700k on Playstation and 300k on pc?



Pretty huge. I think Sony should push for a BB2 and a BB1 remaster for ps5/PC.
