From Software’s game, which was only released on February 25, debuted as both the best-selling title of the month as well as 2022 year to date, ranked on dollar sales.

The game’s launch month sales were only bettered by those of one other game released in the last year, November 2021’s Call of Duty: Vanguard.
Elden Ring appears set to be From Software’s most successful game to date. Its UK release was the biggest launch for a game other than FIFA or Call of Duty since Rockstar‘s Red Dead Redemption 2 in 2018.
Horizon Forbidden West, which released one week earlier than Elden Ring, was the second best-selling game in the US overall last month.
