Dark Souls III, the latest entry into the critically acclaimed dark fantasy series, has seen the series’ biggest launch ever, shipping 3 million copies.
1.5 million of those copies were shipped in North America, 1 million in Europe and 500,000 in Japan. While these numbers don’t refer to how many copies of the game have actually been sold to consumers, we can look at previous games in the series to get an idea of Dark Souls III is performing.
In a similar time frame, Dark Souls sold (not shipped) 1.2 million copies in both the US and Europe combined, while Dark Souls II only shipped 1.2 million copies. So, from that data, it’s clear to see that with 3 million shipped, Dark Souls III is doing rather well in comparison.
From Software’s last game, the PlayStation-exclusive Bloodborne, also sold very well, with a last count putting the title at over 2 million sold.
