According to a new financial report released by From Software’s parent company, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has shipped over 3.8 million copies as of the end of June. That’s double what it sold in the first ten days. Of course, the sales always fall off, and nearly four million copies in about three months since launch is pretty impressive.
It’s no surprise to anybody that Sekiro is selling really well. At this point, any project by From Software and helmed by Hidetaka Miyazaki is pretty much a guaranteed hit. Hell, the game moved two million copies in just the first ten days. Naturally, the numbers have been steadily climbing since. According to the Kadokawa Corporation financial report (via Gematsu), Sekiro has officially moved over 3.8 million copies as of the end of June. Kadokawa Corporation is the parent company of From Software, just so we avoid confusion.
It’s reasonable to assume that, by now, the game has shipped over four million copies, but we don’t have the data to confirm that. One thing is for sure: Sekiro absolutely deserves the sales it’s getting. Sure, it does include many aspects of what we’ve come to see as a typical From Software game, aka the Soulsborne. But, it also mixes up the formula somewhat in order to provide an experience that’s just different enough from the older siblings. The only thing left to do now is to see what the next game, Elden Ring, is gonna be like.
