Within a very short time, the role-playing game “Elden Ring” developed into the most successful title to date from the Japanese studio From Software. As part of the company’s second-quarter report, Bandai Namco Entertainment has provided updated sales numbers for the open-world RPG.
In February of this year, the creators of Dark Souls from From Software and publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment released the open-world role-playing game Elden Ring.
The fantasy adventure not only scored countless dream ratings, but also developed into the most successful From Software title ever in a very short time. As revealed by Bandai Namco Entertainment’s annual report for the second quarter of fiscal year 2022/2023, “Elden Ring” had sold 17.5 million copies as of September 30, 2022.
At the end of the first quarter on June 30, 2022, sales of the role-playing game available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S were still reported at 16.6 million units sold.
Expansion or DLC in the works?
Whether and in what form it will continue with “Elden Ring” is still unclear. While the Bandai Namco Entertainment and From Software executives are silent on the matter, indications of a download extension or at least a DLC seem to have increased in recent weeks and months. Recently, data miners have repeatedly discovered references to possible future content in the source codes of the various “Elden Ring” updates.
These include new bosses, classic old dungeons, a colosseum or new weapons and equipment. Given the commercial success of “Elden Ring”, few should be surprised by an expansion or a DLC. Especially since From Software has also supported titles like the “Dark Souls” series or “Bloodborne” with long-term updates and DLCs in the past.
