There was no denying that gaming fans had a lot of pent-up demand for a new chapter of the Fallout series, but one day after its launch, Fallout 4 was an even bigger hit than many had imagined.
For its launch, publisher Bethesda shipped around 12 million copies of the game worldwide, representing over $750 million in sales. In comparison, the company’s previous biggest launch, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, saw a shipment of 7 million copies.
?We?re extremely proud of Todd Howard, Game Director at Bethesda Game Studios, and his experienced team of developers for their talent and dedication in creating this extraordinary game,? President of Bethesda Softworks Vlatko Andonov said in a statement released by his company. ?Fallout 4 is a masterpiece in game development and storytelling, providing fans hundreds of hours of fun as they explore and are challenged by this fascinating, beautifully crafted world.?
?A huge thanks to our fans that?ve made this all possible,? Todd Howard, Game Director on Fallout 4, continued in the release. ?After four years of development, it’s not complete until our fans get to play it and make it their own. We can’t wait to hear about their adventures.?
