Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sells 2m in less than ten days

FromSoftware's latest challenge on track to outsell Dark Souls games, Bloodborne over a comparable period

Today, FromSoftware and Activision Blizzard announced that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has sold over two million copies globally across all platforms in less than ten days from its launch.

Though the game is not a successor to the Dark Souls games or Bloodborne, it has often been compared or contrasted against the other FromSoftware IP for its style and difficulty. In terms of sales, this milestone seems to outstrip all four of these earlier titles.

Bloodborne reached the two million milestone six months after launch. The original Dark Souls reached 2.3 million a year and a half after launch, Dark Souls II broke 2.5 million after one year. Dark Souls III moved faster than the others, reaching three million after just over a month.

In addition, PC Gamer reported that Sekiro pulled in over 125,000 players on Steam alone on its launch day, making it the fourth most-played game on Steam. For context, the third most-played title that day was Counter-Strike: Global Offensive at over 600,000 players.
