Worldwide Shipments for Final Fantasy XV Break 5 Million, Fastest-Selling Title in Series

final fantasy xv 03-31-15-1

Square Enix has announced worldwide shipments for Final Fantasy XV have topped five million copies.

This means the game is the fastest selling title in the entire series, including both physical and digital copies – with that milestone being hit on the first day of release.

To be clear, this figure is reported shipments for the game, meaning we don’t know exactly how many copies have been actually sold to consumers just yet. Square Enix, however, is saying this is the fastest selling game in the series.

Square Enix is going to continue developing post-launch DLC for the game, as well as other related projects.

Our thorough written / video review for Final Fantasy XV is forthcoming. For now, you can get our first impressions with an hour of footage here.
