Dark Souls 3 Has Sold Over 10 Million Copies, Pushing Series Total To New Milestone
The third installment of the dark fantasy series has broken the 10 million sales milestone.
Over four years after its initial release, Dark Souls 3 has sold over 10 million copies, according to a recent announcement from Bandai Namco. That brings the total number of copies sold in From Software's famously-difficult Dark Souls series to over 27 million.
Back when From Software first announced Eldin Ring--a collaboration with the famed mind behind Game of Thrones, George RR Martin--in June 2019, From Software reported that the series had sold a total of 25 million copies. These figures do not include last year's ninja-tinged Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, nor the Lovecraftian horror game Bloodborne, or the progenitor Souls game Demon's Souls, which were all hits in their own right.
Details are thin on the ground for Elden Ring, which is one of the most anticipated games of the near future, though there's no indication on a possible release date yet. Though fans are still clamoring for a sequel to the beloved Bloodborne--considered by some to be the best game that Miyazaki has made, and his personal favorite--there are no stated plans for that either.
