Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Surpasses 5 Million Units Sold
Sekiro has now reached 5 million in lifetime sales, which is pretty impressive for a relatively niche new IP.
Alongside the recent announcement of a new update for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice that is set to arrive in October, Activision and FromSoftware have also now divulged the latest sales numbers for the action game and they’re pretty impressive.
Divulged on Activision’s website, the lifetime sales of Sekiro have now surpassed 5 million copies in total. This number is accumulated from copies sold across all three platforms that the game is available on (PS4, Xbox One, and PC) and continues to show that units have continued to sell at a steady pace over the past year.
Ten days after launching last year, Activision revealed that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice had sold 2 million copies around the globe. Later in August of 2019, it was then announced that the latest shipping totals had nearly reached 4 million, with the official figure standing at 3.8 million. Since that time, at the very least, 1.2 million additional copies of Sekiro have been sold, which shows that even for being somewhat of a niche game, FromSoftware’s latest release has continued to find success.
One of the reasons why Sekiro has surely continued to sell at an even pace over the past year is likely due in part to the year-end acclaim it received in 2019. The title was the winner of countless Game of the Year honors, including that of The Game Awards’ highest honor. And while it didn’t win our own GOTY award here at DualShockers, it was absolutely my personal favorite game that launched last year. I’d highly recommend that you give it a shot if you have any interest whatsoever.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is available now if you haven’t picked it up already. For more information on the new boss rush game mode that is being added later this year, you can click here.
