Elden Ring is smashing expectations, as Bandai Namco reveals the total number of sales made by the game to date.
It’s that time of year when gaming companies begin to report their total earnings for the previous year, and we’ve been wondering for some time about Bandai Namco.
The publisher of FromSoftware’s Elden Ring has now revealed just how popular the title was, after the game went viral online. While the Souls franchise has always had a dedicated fan base, Elden Ring shattered expectations, going above and beyond what gamers had expected.
In a somewhat lackluster AAA market, FromSoftware managed to not only live up to but actually exceed all hype. And now, we know how total sales Elden Ring made in early 2022.
How Many Total Sales Has Elden Ring Made?
According to a new earnings report by Bandai Namco, Elden Ring has over 13.4 million total sales as of March 31. However, this is probably far from the game’s total sales in May.
After all, the game’s popularity is still notable, now a month and a half on from the aforementioned statistic.
Given that Elden Ring still has a huge player count, and that the game’s hype traveled mostly by word of mouth, we expect at least another million sales have been made since March. With that in mind, Elden Ring is probably at upwards of 15 million total sales by now.
Recently, Elden Ring players got together to share their biggest issues with the game. Perhaps with some tweaks, Elden Ring 2’s total sales will blow this title out of the water.
There are also rumors of an eagerly-awaited Elden Ring DLC coming soon, and we hope to see an announcement before long.
If you’re just about done with FromSoftware’s recent release, why not see if you got the best ending in Elden Ring?
