            <a href="https://www.pcgamesn.com/best-open-world-games" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Open-world</a> juggernaut <a href="https://www.pcgamesn.com/elden-ring" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Elden Ring</a> continues to go from strength to strength, with publisher Bandai Namco <a href="https://www.bandainamco.co.jp/files/ir/financialstatements/pdf/20220511_Presentation.pdf" target="_blank" rel="noopener">confirming in its latest sales report</a> that Elden Ring sales have exceeded 13.4 million worldwide as of March 31. The <a href="https://www.pcgamesn.com/15-best-rpgs-pc" target="_blank" rel="noopener">challenging RPG</a> has further solidified developer FromSoftware as a mainstream success, eclipsing sales of their previous titles such as Dark Souls III, which sold just over three million copies worldwide in its first month of release - at the time the fastest-selling title in Bandai Namco’s history.

A previous report stated that cumulative worldwide sales of Elden Ring had exceeded 12 million by March 16, meaning that it racked up another 1.4 million units sold in the last two weeks of that month. The acclaimed open-world co-op game still has a way to go to reach the combined Dark Souls series sales, which Bandai Namco reported had reached 27 million in 2020.

It was also recently reported that almost half of Elden Ring’s EU sales were on PC, making the PC version the most popular, with its total units sold outstripping the combined sales numbers on PS4 and PS5. To further put these numbers into perspective, FromSoftware’s previous title Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sold 5 million copies in just over a year.
