The current shipment figure may actually be higher, as Konami is only counting copies shipped through the end of its reporting period on September 30. In addition, Konami did not say how many of those shipped copies were converted to actual sales.
The Phantom Pain received glowing praise upon release, including a 10/10 score from GameSpot. It also represents something of a turning point for Konami, as series creator Hideo Kojima is rumored to have exited the company on October 8. However, Konami claims the veteran game designer is only on vacation.
