The Skywalker Saga has smashed Lego console game launch records
Warner Bros. claim the Star Wars title has sold through 3.2 million in 2 weeks
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has smashed launch records for all previous Lego console games, its creators have claimed.
According to Warner Bros. Games, Skywalker Saga sold through some 3.2 million units globally in its first two weeks, and exceeded sales records across “across every platform, region, and edition” for Lego console games.
The figures represent the first indication of how well the game has performed globally. Previously, GfK data suggested that The Skywalker Saga recorded the biggest UK launch for a Lego game to date.
Based on physical sales alone, it beat the previous UK record holder, 2008’s Lego Indiana Jones, by 8.4%, according to GfK data published on GamesIndustry.biz.

It sold more boxed copies at launch than Horizon Forbidden West and Elden Ring managed but it couldn’t match 2022’s fastest-selling title, Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
The game also made a strong start on Steam, beating the previous record for concurrent players on any Lego game on the service by 1200%.
Developed by TT Games in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games and published by Warner Bros. Games, The Skywalker Saga incorporates all nine mainline Star Wars movies, with DLC based around spin-offs such as Rogue One and The Mandalorian.
VGC’s Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga review called it the best Lego game to date and one of the best Star Wars games ever.
Going forwards, VGC understands that Lego has signed a new multi-game partnership with 2K, as the construction toy firm looks to broaden its games output beyond the expiration of its exclusivity deal with TT Games.
