Elder Scrolls Online Sells 8.5 Million Copies, Director Says

Sounds like Bethesda's MMO is doing well.


The Elder Scrolls Online has 8.5 million players, according to a report from MMORPG.com. The figure, which was revealed by game director Matt Firor, is based on copies sold, not just registered accounts.

According to MMORPG, The Elder Scrolls Online has 7 million players as of June 2016, so it's added 1.5 million new players in less than a year.
