Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has performed very well on digital marketplaces compared to FromSoftware’s other work.
According to SuperData, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was among the most successful digital launches in March. The game sold through 1.4 million copies digitally on both PC, and consoles.
This is roughly 200,000 copies more than Dark Souls 3 did at its launch in 2016, with consoles specifically driving this growth. Activision previously revealed that Sekiro sold over 2 million in 10 days in combined digital, and retail sales.
It now appears that the split very strongly favours digital, which is worth mentioning given Sekiro is an offline, single-playthrough-type game that would typically skew physical. At US retail, Sekiro was the second best-selling game of March.
Digitally, the game landed at number four on consoles, and number seven on PC, according to SuperData’s data.
The Division 2, which also launched in March, unsurprisingly dominated digital spending on consoles, though it is nowhere to be seen on PC in the report. The Division 2 topped the charts at US retail during the same month, so it’s certainly doing well.
