Elden Ring has literally overtaken other games in the last month

The action RPG Elden Ring was launched in a crowd with several high-profile games. However, in a somewhat unexpected outcome of the situation, other games remained in the thick shadow of the Elden Ring, judging by the sales results.

Indeed, we do not have statistics on the sale of titles such as Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7, but it has now been revealed that the Elden Ring has sold an incredible 12 million copies in less than a month. Here are some facts that will put this result in context:

  • Elden Ring is the best-selling new game since Call of Duty: Vanguard
  • The Elden Ring has become the fastest-selling new IP in Europe in six years
  • Elden Ring is already arguably the best-selling studio game From Software
  • the first three games of the Souls series together didn’t sell as many copies as Elden Ring sold in 20 days
  • Dark Souls 3 has sold 10 million copies on the market in four years as the previously best-selling From Software game
  • The Elden Ring has sold more than a million copies in Japan, which is important to point out because very few new games in Japan have sold more than a million copies; for example, in 2021, only three games were sold in more than a million copies, and in addition, of the 100 best-selling games, only 25 were for PlayStation platforms
