Skyrim Ships Seven Million Copies in First Week

THE BUZZ: Bethesda has announced that it’s shipped seven million copies of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim during its first week of release.

More than 50% of launch units were sold within the first 48 hours with many major retailers across Norther America and Europe placing large reorders. Steam also announced that within the first 24 hours of Skyrims’ release over 280,000 concurrent players were online.

EGM’s TAKE: An RPG launch that rivals major shooter sales? We love to see that, as it speaks to the diversity of gamers today.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
