It's safe to say Elden Ring has been a huge hit so far in 2022. It's been one of the most talked about games of the year, with some earmarking it as a huge Game of the Year contender already. Bandai Namco will no doubt be pleased with how things are going as well, as the publisher reveals some Elden Ring sales figures.
Up to the end of March 2022, Bandai Namco has shipped 13.4 million copies of Elden Ring. We must stress this is shipped to stores rather than sold to customers, but we can't image that sold through figure being much further behind. To put this into context, prior to March 31st, Elden Ring shipped roughly a million copies every three days!
Back in the middle of March, European sales data deemed Elden Ring the biggest new IP in the region since Ubisoft's The Division, which launched back in 2016. At that point, FromSoftware's latest release had only been on sale for a few short weeks.
This is a pretty staggering sales pace and we can't even imagine where Elden Ring's figures will be by the end of 2022. There's some big stuff bound to come out by the end of the calendar year, but Elden Ring will surely remain one of the 2022's biggest successes.
