First sales numbers for Fallout 4 has come in, and much as expected, the game has done rather well. According to Gamesindustry.biz, Fallout 4 has shipped around 12 million units across PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
“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,” said Bethesda Softworks president Vlatko Andonov. “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.”
Not only is that an achievement though, but in an interesting twist, nearly 2 million digital copies of Fallout 4 has been purchased in the first three days of the games arrival. Due to the lower cost of making the digital copies of the game, it is believed that Bethesda acquired $100 million of profits via those purchases.
