Bandai Namco Expects Elden Ring To Sell 4 Million In Debut Month
Bandai Namco has shared their sales expectations for Elden Ring during their recent fiscal results. They expect it to sell 4 million copies.
Elden Ring is the latest new title from the creative mind of Hidetaka Miyazaki. It is a brand new open-world game by From Software that takes their experience with the Dark Souls series and attempts to blend it in a new direction. They also collaborated with Game of Thrones George R. R. Martin to create some of the lore for the game.
In a new Q/A session with investors, Bandai Namco has shared their expectations for the sales of Elden Ring.
As for future major titles, we plan to release “ELDEN RING” in February 2022. The game has received high praise from the game industry and game fans, winning numerous awards at European game events even before its release, and is expected to sell 4 million units by the end of this fiscal year.
Bandai Namco is talking about the end of their fiscal year 2022 which is March 31, 2022. They will release Elden Ring on February 25, 2022, so they expect it to have sold 4 million copies by then, which is a decent estimate.
For a comparison, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice shipped 3.8 million copies in four months. It was published by Activision and developed by From Software. It was also their fastest-selling game that achieved 2 million sales in ten days. It ended up with five million sales in a little more than a year, and this was the last reported figure for it by July 2020.
