Elden Ring Goes Hard With 12 Million Sold Copies

A terrific feat early into the RPG's release

Elden Ring is one of the hottest releases of 2022, laying our great, desperate desires of getting the next Soulsborne game to rest. The title was initially announced way back in E3 2019, but was only just released for public access worldwide. It’s safe to say that the wait has been definitely worth it—Hidetaka Miyazaki’s latest creation is nothing short of a masterpiece. 

Recent statistics from the developers themselves seem to be proving just that point, right after the title’s universal acclaim from the top media publishers around the globe. It appears that Elden Ring has recently achieved a brand-spanking-new milestone by hitting the figure of 12 million sold units. It bears noticing here that the action RPG isn’t even a full month into its release whereas the numbers are starting to manifest. 

The announcement of this glad tiding has been made by the official Elden Ring Twitter handle. The appreciative post has been kept fairly concise while including a descriptive image that says, “Thank You. 12 Million Tarnished.”

It bears noticing that Elden Ring also seemed to grab the title of the best-selling video game in the United States of America for the month of February, which happens to be its release month. The funny thing is, the game only had 4 days to compete with respect to other titles last month. 

In addition, Elden Ring is US’ top-seller for 2022, sprinting just ahead of Horizon Forbidden West, which, in other news, happened to top the UK’s sales chart with 50% digital sales in recent times. As for Elden Ring, this Souls-like IP is only going to grow from here on out, and there’s definitely no stopping that.
