Square Enix have announced that Final Fantasy VII Remake has sold 5 million copies worldwide.
In addition, the announcement tweet confirms the game has become Square Enix’ highest selling digital release on a PlayStation platform.
“We’d like to share a Midgar-sized THANK YOU to everyone who has supported #FinalFantasy VII Remake.
We shipped and digitally sold over five million copies worldwide, which has made #FF7R the highest selling digital release on the PlayStation platform in #SquareEnix history!”
In late April of this year, Square Enix announced the game sold 3.5 million units three days after its launch. The game did sell “much earlier“ in Europe and Australia as a means to work around the coronavirus pandemic. This also likely contributed to the games high digital sales.
You can find the full rundown of the game (via PlayStation) below.
The world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy.
In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him.
A spectacular re-imagining of one of the most visionary games ever, the first game in this project will be set in the eclectic city of Midgar and presents a fully standalone gaming experience.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is available on PlayStation 4, with console exclusivity ending April 4th, 2021. In case you missed it, you can find our review here.
