Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim reaches 10-millionth mark

Zenimax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Software – the well-known maker of the Elder Scrolls series, has announced that the latest addition to the fantasy line of games – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has shipped 10 million copies across the Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation with retail sales reaching 650 million US dollars.

The Zenimax people can be even happier because they have received requests for “large retail orders”. When the game was released Zenimax provided 7 million copies, 3.5 million of which were sold in the first 48 hours after the launch.

This news comes in contrast to the claims that PC gaming is facing its imminent death. The recent releases and record sales of Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 also speak of the opposite.

The game has had huge success in the North American market where it outsold every other competitor three to one in November 2011. It now experiences success in Steam where it is the fastest selling title in the history of the digital distribution platform.

Skyrim will enjoy new additions in 2012 such as DLC packs and a do-it-yourself level editor so most likely its fame and success will continue.
