According to Activision, FromSoftware’s new brain child, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, has sold over two million copies worldwide in the first ten days of its lifespan. This is, of course, across all the platforms that Sekiro is available on. Pretty good numbers, if I do say so myself.
I don’t think that anybody is particularly surprised about the fact that a FromSoftware game is selling really, really well. Still, I’d venture to say that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has done better than some might have predicted, given the game’s extremely short lifespan at the time of writing. Let’s be honest, for a game like this, moving two million copies worldwide in under ten days is truly impressive. Sure, it’s not FIFA numbers, but then again, not many things are. The numbers are a testament to both FromSoftware’s legacy among gamers, as well as, I’d say, Activision’s strong marketing push. Still no Easy Mode in sight for you to cheat yourself with, though.
Michelle Fonseca, Vice President of Product Management at Activision, expressed herself very positively about the game, stating (via DualShockers): “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has brought something very special and unique to Activision’s portfolio of games. It’s been an honor to work with FromSoftware to help introduce a brand-new franchise to gamers around the world. The fans have made Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice one of the most incredible game launches of 2019 thus far. The game has performed well on all platforms including PC and we’re excited by the continued support from gamers and critics alike. It has been gratifying to see the enjoyment from fans when they overcome each challenge.”
