Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XVI has “shipped and digitally sold” 3 million copies on the PlayStation 5, with the number coming in just less than a week since it was released.
Putting things into perspective, the Final Fantasy VII Remake sold 3.5 million units in just 3 days with a vastly superior PS4 install base, and Final Fantasy XV sold 5 million units in 1 day but as a multiplatform release.
Here’s an overview of the game:
Final Fantasy XVI brings players into a world where Eikons are powerful and deadly creatures that reside within Dominants—a single man or woman who is blessed with the ability to call upon their dreaded power. The story follows Clive Rosfield, a young man dedicated to mastering the blade, who is dubbed the First Shield of Rosaria and tasked to guard his younger brother Joshua—the Dominant of the Phoenix. Unexpected events set Clive on a dark and dangerous road to revenge.
Final Fantasy XVI is now available on PS5.
