NieR: Automata Hits Over 2 Million in Sales – FFXV Tops Out At Nearly 6.6 Million

Square Enix have just released their latest financial results concerning three of their biggest current titles, as well as information regarding to some of their, as yet, unannounced projects.

Here are the sales figures in question:

  • Final Fantasy XV – Nearing 6.6 million copies sold
  • Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age – More than 3 million copies sold
  • NieR: Automata – More than 2 million copies sold

Final Fantasy XV’s 6.6 million copies puts it ahead of Final Fantasy XII’s 6.1 million copies sold, though it is still some ways behind Final Fantasy VII’s gargantuan total of 12.1 million.

The most heart-warming titbit to glean from this latest financial report is the continued success of NieR: Automata, which has already smashed the 0.62 million lifetime sales achieved by its predecessor. Hopefully, the game’s commercial success combined with its critical adoration will result in a well-deserved sequel.

In addition to revealing their latest sales figures, Square Enix also divulged information regarding their upcoming smartphone releases. Though many of the projects have yet to be officially announced, the company have expressed the desire to release a number of smartphone games in the second half of the fiscal year. This is in addition to plans to launch several big-budget titles overseas, many of which are being prepared for E3 2018 appearances.
