The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim sells 20 million copies
Bethesda reveals new sales milestone for 2011 single-player role-playing game.
Bethesda Game Studios' acclaimed single-player role-playing game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has now sold more than 20 million copies since launch in November 2011.
Bethesda announced the news as part of a recent press release, but did not say if the sales figure refers to sell-in (shipped) or sell-through (sold). We've asked a Bethesda representative for comment.
Skyrim, which was our 2011 Game of the Year, sold-through 3.5 million copies during its first 48 hours out of 7 million copies shipped to retailers during that two-day window. Bethesda Game Studios is now working on a new game, believed to be the Boston-set Fallout 4 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
