While publisher Bandai Namco initially predicted that FromSoftware‘s Elden Ring would sell around 4 million units, the game has more than surpassed expectations. In the 18 days following its release, over 12 million copies of Elden Ring have been sold worldwide, the two companies announced on Monday.

According to the press release, the game was released throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. 1 million units were sold in Japan alone.

Created in collaboration with novelist George R. R. Martin, who is best known for writing the series behind Game of Thrones, Elden Ring is an open-world action RPG that entered development in 2017. Players begin with a linear opening but are gradually enabled to explore the mythical Lands Between.

“We hope players enjoy a high level of freedom when adventuring through its vast world, exploring its many secrets and facing up to its many threats,” FromSoftware director Hidetaka Miyazaki said in a statement.

“Much effort was placed into creating Elden Ring so that we could exceed the expectations of our fans worldwide,” Bandai Namco CEO Yasuo Miyakawa added.“In like manner, we will continue our efforts in expanding the brand beyond the game itself, and into everyone’s daily life.”

Elden Ring is out for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S now.
