The announcement comes after the game's 2nd-anniversary trailer launched.
Last year Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown celebrated its 25th anniversary by offering players a celebratory DLC containing a bunch of original aircraft from the previous games in the long-running franchise. Now, Project Aces have revealed that the 2019 release has surpassed a total of 2.5 million units sold.
In a tweet from the official account, it was revealed that the worldwide sales of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown have exceeded 2.5 million sales. To celebrate the milestone, the studio released a new wallpaper for fans that is available to download in numerous sizes. 4K included. It features a pilot inside of one of the game’s aircraft, with the overall image washed with a blueish tinge.
