FromSoftware’s Elden Ring has sold over one million units in Japan and over 12 million units worldwide since releasing on February 25th. This is according to a new press release by the developer in which president and CEO/director Hidetaka Miyazaki said, “It’s astonishing to see just how many people have been playing ‘Elden Ring.’ I’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks on behalf of the entire development team.”

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.” The press release further told players to look forward to more of Elden Ring as “an IP” (which means its characters and other intellectual property) with the hope of “expanding beyond the realm of games.”

The open world action RPG has been setting its fair share of records since launch. Its physical sales in the UK made it the third biggest retail launch of 2022 and it’s since been confirmed as the biggest new IP in Europe since 2016’s The Division. The NPD Group and Famitsu also reported it to have topped sales charts for February in the United States and Japan respectively.

Elden Ring is currently available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC. Check out our review here for more details.
