When the rather brilliant Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice released in March this year, it came under fire from many people for being too challenging and not being accessible enough. That didn’t stop the game from selling pretty well, with Activision reporting at the time that the game had sold 2 million copies within the first 10 days.
Well, some new figures came out as reported by DualShockers, and it would seem Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is still doing very well, with 3.8 million copies shipped since launch. That doesn’t mean so many people actually bought the game, but it would definitely indicate that there’s a demand for it.
Besides me being a massive fan of the game, and it still tracking to be my personal Game of the Year, seeing it sell well makes me happy, since it shows there’s a definite market for well made, single-player experiences. This is particularly encouraging if you consider that Games-as-a-Service is all the rage at the moment.
From Software’s next outing will be Elden Ring, which is a collaboration between Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and Game of Thrones writer George R. R. Martin. We don’t know much about it yet, but seeing it’s from a studio with an incredible track record, it is definitely something to keep on your radar.
