Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sales ‘hit 2 million in 10 days’

Activision says game’s “performed well on all platforms including PC”

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sales topped two million units in less than ten days, the game’s publisher Activision has claimed.

The latest action adventure title from Dark Souls and Bloodborne maker From Software sees players take on the role of a shinobi on a revenge mission in late-1500s Sengoku Japan.

Released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 22, it received glowing reviews, earning a 90+ score on all platforms according to review aggregation site Metacritic.

Michelle Fonseca, Activision’s VP of product management and marketing, said in a press release the game “has performed well on all platforms including PC”.

“Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has brought something very special and unique to Activision’s portfolio of games,” she added. “It’s been an honor to work with From Software to help introduce a brand-new franchise to gamers around the world.”

VGC’s Sekiro review praised the game’s smart combat system, great skill trees and more coherent than expected story, while noting, as with other From Software games, some will find it too hard.

“Sekiro is a fabulous game,” reads the 5/5 verdict. “It really feels like the culmination of From Software’s modus operandi, honed relentlessly since 2009, and while it plays pretty much like the Soulsborne games, it also feels different and fresh.”
