Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Has Respectable Sales Figures

Kadokawa Corporation, the parent company of FromSoftware, revealed how well Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, has been selling since its March 22 release in its latest financial report.

We wrote back in mid-April what Activision said then – back then, the official sales information was that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has sold two million copies on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, in its first ten days (by the end of March). Since then, more then a quarter year has passed (and thus, the first quarter of the current fiscal year has come and gone, too), so we can add some to that tally. Namely 1.8 million units, as Kadokawa says that by the end of June, the game sold 3.8 million copies, which is a respectable amount for a FromSoftware product. It might be over 4 million at this point.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has brought something very special and unique to Activision’s portfolio of games. It’s been an honour to work with From Software 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,” Michelle Fonseca, Activision’s vice president of product management and marketing, said in a press release back in April. And we agree.

Since then, FromSoftware is working on something else – namely Elden Ring, which had its lore written by George R. R. Martin, whose work was used for Game of Thrones as well. That game is far away, so get Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice until then. (Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been nicknamed LIDL Sekiro – that says it all…)
