Skyrim ships 10 million
Bethesda's latest Elder Scrolls RPG has now earned some $650 million in retail sales alone; fastest-selling title on Steam to date.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim continues to post soaring numbers for Bethesda Softworks. Today, Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media announced that its fantasy role-playing game has shipped 10 million units across the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC platforms. That tally amounts to approximately $650 million in retail sales, the publisher noted.
With the publisher calling out "large retail reorders," Skyrim is apparently doing quite well on the PC platform as well. Bethesda said today that the PC version of Skyrim in North America outsold all other PC games by a magnitude of three to one during November. According to Valve, Skyrim is the fastest-selling title on Steam in the digital distribution platform's history. Previously, Valve had announced that the game had set a new Steam record with more than 280,000 concurrent players on Skyrim's launch day.
Bethesda intends to support Skyrim into 2012. PC players will get access to a Creation Kit utility in January that will give users access to Bethesda's own development tools to make new Skyrim content. The studio is also prepping downloadable content for the title, the first two of which will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 platform for 30 days.
