Final Fantasy XV Reaches Six Million Shipped Worldwide

by Robert Workman


Wow, people really love Final Fantasy XV…even more than Square Enix could’ve possibly anticipated.

The publisher reported just a little while ago that the game has managed to exceed more than six million copies shipped since it launched back in late November. That number includes both shipped copies that made their way to stores, along with digital versions of the game that sold across PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.

The company noted in a statement, “Having received critical acclaim across the world for its beautiful world design and graphical quality, along with the open-world freedom and exciting new battle system, the game continues its strong sales after recording five million units on day one.

"Final Fantasy XV provides additional content and associated products to expand and enhance players’ experiences, starting with the free game update, Holiday Pack (Free Version) and premium Holiday Pack + DLC which are now available for download. Those who download the Holiday Pack (Free Version) or Holiday Pack+ will also gain access to the Moogle Chocobo Carnival, a special in-game event that brings an exciting festival to the whole city of Altissia, starting on Tuesday, January 24th, for a limited time.

"To allow players a deeper enjoyment of Final Fantasy XV, regular updates enhancing the main game will be coming soon, such as premium DLC content that will provide players additional gameplay experiences.”

Final 2

Those of you who downloaded the initial DLC for the game should have access to the “carnival passport” to get into the Carnival when it opens later this month.

Congrats to Square Enix on the epic feat, and you can bet that sales aren’t done yet, with even more content coming to the game this year. The real question here is what surprises await us in the world of Final Fantasy

Final Fantasy XV is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
