Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Sells 2 Million Copies in 10 Days
FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has sold two million copies in just 10 days.
Revealed by publisher Activision, this number was achieved between sales on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Activision confirmed to IGN that this is sold through to consumers, and includes both digital and physical sales on all platforms.
“It’s been an honor to work with FromSoftware to help introduce a brand-new franchise to gamers around the world,” said Activision VP of product management and marketing Michelle Fonseca. “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.”
Activision also revealed that Sekiro was the most viewed game on Twitch on its launch day, with over 631 million minutes watched during its launch weekend and 1.1 billion minutes watched within one week of release.
Sekiro follows a string of successful and notably difficult games from FromSoftware, including Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Its release has sparked a renewed debate about accessibility in games, which many argue is about far more than just difficulty.
