Dark Souls 3 enjoys the series' biggest launch

Ships 3 million copies worldwide

Dark Souls 3 shipped 3 million copies, Bandai Namco announced today, making this the largest launch in series history.

The figure is for units shipped to retailers, not actual copies sold, but it still appears Dark Souls 3 will end up the all time leader in that department. The first sold 1.2 million copies, the second only shipped 1.2 million copies, over roughly the same span after their launches. Dark Souls 3 launched March 24.

The series has sold 13 million units lifetime, Bandai Namco said. The shipping breakdown for Dark Souls 3 is 1.5 million to North America, 1 million in Europe, and 500,000 in Asia.
