The Dark Souls series started back in 2011 as a follow-up to the game Demon’s Souls. From then, Dark Souls 2 was released in 2014, followed by Dark Souls 3 in 2016. There’s also the remaster of Dark Souls 1, which launched in 2018, and Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, which brought the game to PS4 and Xbox One.
The most popular game is by far Dark Souls 3 however, with Bandai Namco announcing that the game has sold over 10 million copies alone. For a series that’s been going for a decade, 27 million copies sold is an impressive feat, and a testament to how popular Dark Souls has become. That said, the sales figure will pale in comparison to the overall amount of recorded deaths across the series.
