Elden Ring continues its spectacular momentum. Bandai Namco takes stock of the sales figures for FromSoftware’s latest magnum opus and it’s a total hit.
Bandai Namco has regained its iron health. The Japanese company, which now has a red logo, has exceeded its own forecasts for the fiscal year which ended on March 31. So much so that the publisher has almost doubled its net profit in the space of a year. And you don’t have to look far to find the cause: Elden Ring.
Elden Ring continues to be a hit
From the first month of its release, a certain Elden Ring exploded all expectations. In terms of sales, the Japanese publisher had estimated that FromSoftware’s latest nugget would sell 4 million copies “only”. He was obviously far from expecting the phenomenal success of the game, which has continued to fade ever since. By the end of the fiscal year at the end of March, Elden Ring had sold more than 13.4 million copies, three times more than Bandai Namco’s initial forecast.
A nice increase compared to the 12 million units listed on March 16th. Few games can claim to sell an additional 1.4 million units in just two weeks. The PC also accounted for almost half of sales alone during this same period. The title co-developed with the creator of Game of Thrones also largely beat the former sales record holder. Dark Souls 3 has indeed passed more than 10 million sales spread over a period of four years.
