Tomb Raider sold 11 million copies & almost half of them are coming from PC, ROTTR shifts 7 million units

In an interview with GamesIndustry, Square Enix revealed that Tomb Raider has sold 11 million copies worldwide so far. And while the publisher did not unveil any platform details, SteamSpy’s data reveals that almost half of them are coming from the PC.

As we can see, the Steam version has sold so far 5 million copies. Tomb Raider came out on pretty much all major platforms. These are PC, PS3, Xbox 360, PS4 and Xbox One. As such, it’s great news that the PC has managed to outsell pretty much all of them.

Square Enix has also revealed that Rise of the Tomb Raider has shipped almost 7 million units. Do note that this number is not the same with the one for the units that have been sold. This number is likely lower, so bear that in mind.

According to SteamSpy’s data, Rise of the Tomb Raider has sold 2 million copies on the PC. In other words, the PC stands for 29% of the game’s shifted units. That percentage is obviously higher if we account sold units, however it won’t come close to the percentage for the Tomb Raider reboot. Rise of the Tomb Raider came out on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
