Dark Souls Hits 27 Million Units Sold Worldwide

That's a lot of respawning at bonfires.

Dark Souls 1

FromSoftware and Bandai Namco have announced that the Dark Souls series as a whole has managed to surpass 27 million units sold worldwide, with 2 million more copies sold since their next game, Elden Ring, was announced back in June 2019.

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.
