Final Fantasy XV has sold over 10 million copies worldwide, Square Enix confirmed this morning. The PlayStation 4 JRPG was first released in November 2016 before being repackaged into a Royal Edition some 18 months later, with the latest sales milestone likely split between the two versions. the PS Plus collection also offers a completely free digital copy of Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition, but it’s unclear if downloads through the service count towards the final sales total.
In a tweet, the Official Final Fantasy XV Twitter account thanked everyone for supporting the game. Via Google translate, the message reads: “[Final Fantasy XV] achieved cumulative worldwide sales of 10 million units! Thank you for your support! Thank you for your continued support #FF15!”
If online projections are correct, this makes Final Fantasy XV one of the best-selling entries in the series to date. The PS1 classic Final Fantasy VII is said to have sold in the region of 13 million units, putting it at the top of the sales chart, while Final Fantasy X (original game + HD remasters) and the MMO in Final Fantasy XIV line are both apparently around the 10 million mark as well. In the case of Final Fantasy VII Remake, we know for sure that it had sold over five million copies as of August 2020, making it the “best-selling digital release on the PlayStation platform of the history of Square Enix”.
