Total War: Three Kingdoms Sells Over 1 Million Copies in First Week, Now Fastest-Selling Game in Franchise

Sega and Creative Assembly have announced Total War: Three Kingdoms has sold over a million copies.

The new milestone was reached within the first week of the game being available – making Three Kingdoms the fastest-selling game in the franchise.

“We knew we had something special with Three Kingdoms but the response from players, old and new, has exceeded all expectations,” said Rob Bartholomew, chief product officer. “We’re seeing a lot of ‘best Total War ever’ comments out there. We’re very proud.”

The game was naturally very popular in China, the region whose history and warlords are featured in the game.

“China, in particular, has dramatically moved up through the market share ranking for our titles over the last four or five years,” Bartholomew aid. “We’re now at a point where China is absolutely the most major market for Three Kingdoms.”
