Publisher Koei Tecmo and developer Team Ninja have announced that the Nioh franchise has been quite successful. The two companies have revealed that the Nioh franchise has sold over 7 million copies worldwide.
It is worth noting that the two Nioh games were able to reach this milestone while only being available on PC, PS4, and PS5. The game is not available on Xbox consoles, and according to series director Fumihiko Yasuda, it is unlikely that Xbox will get Nioh.
The first Nioh was originally released back in 2017 on PS4, eventually being released on PC the same year. Nioh 2, similarly, launched exclusively on PS4 in 2020, coming to PC almost an entire year after its original release.
Back in February, Team Ninja revealed that Nioh 2 alone had shipped over 2.5 million units, and the number has likely gone up since then. The franchise had originally hit the 6 million milestone last year.
Nioh and Nioh 2 are available on PC, PS4 and PS5, and Nioh 2 is headlining the PS Plus Essential lineup in November.
The #Nioh franchise has now surpassed 7 million units shipped worldwide!
We'd like to take a moment to thank everyone who has supported us over the years with the release of #Nioh in Feb. 2017 & #Nioh2 in Mar. 2020.
We hope you look forward to future Team NINJA Studio projects! pic.twitter.com/TPipp1Yllt
