Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Has Shipped Around 3.8 Million Copies
The game’s sales for the past 2.5 months are on par with the first 10 days number
In the newest financial report, FromSoftware’s parent corporation Kadokawa informed that as of June 30 Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice shipments reached 3.8 million copies. Keeping in mind the game’s success, it may have already reached 4 million copies sold by now. Now, Sekiro can now be considered one of the most successful new IPs of the generation.
Naturally, Sekiro’s sales pace has significantly reduced since it was released on March 22. The title’s publisher Activision previously reported that it sold more than 2 million copies in the first 10 days since launch.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a hardcore action game that is somewhat more friendly than FromSoftware previous titles such as Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series. Sekiro has a more outlined storyline that’s delivered through classic cutscenes rather than just a description of items and players imagination. It also lacks multiplayer features.
Even though the game is obviously doing very well, the devs have no plans to support it with DLCs. As an industry insider teapoppuri from the ResetEra forum reports, FromSoftware has already shifted its focus to the development of a new game Elden Ring. It’s unlikely that the title will be shown at Gamescom 2019 this month.
