Dark Souls Series Has Sold 8 Million Copies Worldwide, 40% Coming From The PC Platform

Bandai Namco has revealed that its Dark Souls series has sold 8 million copies worldwide. However, what’s interesting here is that 40% of those sales is from the PC. Yeap, you read that right. Even though the first Dark Souls game got an awful port – and the PC version of Dark Souls 2 lacked the advanced lighting system that was showcased prior to the game’s release – this series has managed to sell 3.2 million copies on PC alone.

Going into more details – and according to Steamspy’s stats – the first Dark Souls game has sold 1,966,773 copies, while Dark Souls 2 and Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin have sold 987,618 and 248,659 copies, respectively.

This is definitely amazing news for PC gamers as these sales prove that PC gamers have embraced this title.

Here is hoping that Dark Souls III will be better optimized – in every aspect – than its predecessors.
