Dark Souls Sells 2.3 Million Copies Worldwide

April 12, 2013 -

Dark Souls has now sold more than 2.3 million copies worldwide, according to developer From Software (by way of NeoGAF and Gpara). From Software president Eiichi Nakajima announced the sales figures on stage this week at an event for Japanese press, attended by Gpara. He also announced that the sequel to the popular hardcore action RPG, Dark Souls 2 would be coming to the Xbox 360. The game is due for release sometime in 2014 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

To-date, Dark Souls has sold 375,000 copies for PS3 in Japan, and 1.3 million internationally on PS3 and Xbox 360. A re-release with extra DLC content called Artorias of the Abyss Edition sold another 137,000 for PS3 and PC in Japan, with a further 555,000 copies sold PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 worldwide. That's a total of 2,367,000 copies sold to-date across all platforms on a worldwide basis.

Not too shabby! Hopefully the PC port of the game won't be so crappy this time out and will not use Games for Windows Live...

I just beat this game today. (after 75 hours) It's brutally cathartic and anyone who is patient and methodical should check it out. Nothing quite like it.

Clearly Dark Souls did not meet its sales expectations.  Nakajima-san must resign immediately as company president!  Oh wait, this isn't Square Enix, where we consider multi-million sales figures to be a failure...

But yeah, no Games for Windows Live this time please!  And let's make the PC port actually look good without having to resort to mods!  Otherwise, I like what we just saw so far.  It looks like the new director has the right idea about what makes the series tick.  DS2 is in good hands.

"The game is due for release sometime in 2014 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC."

So, once again, for everything except Nintendo's console.
