The Dark Souls series has sold more than 8.5 million copies

The Dark Souls series has gone from cult status to mega hit franchise. Since the release of the first game, the series has gathered for 8.5 million units worldwide. Below is a more detailed breakdown of the numbers courtesy of NeoGAF:

According to the numbers:

  • Dark Souls has sold 2,828,000 units worldwide
  • Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (“with Artorias of the Abyss”) has sold 2,765,000 units worldwide
  • Dark Souls 2 has sold 2,311,000 units worldwide
  • Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin has sold 600,000 units worldwide
  • That’s a total of 8,504,000 sold

The PC-specific number comes from SteamSpy, which may not be entirely accurate. According to SteamSpy:

  • Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition has sold 1,977,541 (+/- 33,243) units on Steam
  • Dark Souls 2 has sold 994,455 (+/- 23,621) units on Steam
  • Dark Souls 2: Scholars of the First Sin has sold 256,772 (+/- 12,021) units on Steam
  • That’s a total of 3,228,768 sold (+/- 68,885)

I still remember when Demon’s Souls came out in the west and slowly but surely gained great word of mouth, so it’s great to see Dark Souls is such a big franchise.
