Skyrim ships 10 million units
Bethesda RPG is the fastest selling game in Steam's history, total revenue hits $650 million
Bethesda Softworks has shipped 10 million units of its hit RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim across all formats.
Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media Inc. estimates that the game has generated around $650 million since it launched less than six weeks ago.
The PC version has also sold strongly, outperforming other games by a factor of three-to-one in the month of its release.
"Skyrim is the fastest selling title in Steam's history" said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve, in a statement.
"Bethesda's commitment to and understanding of the PC as a gaming platform shows in the great review scores, spectacular launch, and continued high player numbers that Skyrim has received."
Skyrim sold 3.5 million copies 48 hours when it launched in November. Since then, it has continued to sell strongly, despite being plagued by a number of technical issues.
