Fallout 4 has sold over 500,000 copies at retail in the UK during its first week on sale.


Fallout 4 continues to break sales records in the UK and the rest of the world. Having topped the UK charts on its release week and become the third biggest 2015 launch in the country, it has now been revealed it did so with the help of over 500,000 units.

The number only covers retail sales across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, according to GfK Chart-Track data. Fallout 4 is now the 18th all-time fastest-selling game in terms of units in the UK.

The number represents £24 million in revenue for Bethesda.

The publisher has announced earlier that it has shipped 12 million units worldwide, and that demand was high enough for it to produce even more.

Fallout 4’s massive sales didn’t just happen at retail, either, the game has sold over 1.87 million units digitally across Steam, PSN, and Xbox Live, according to SuperData.
