Skyrim ships 10 million units worldwide

You may have already figured out by now that Skyrim sales are quite high, but that shouldn’t make the latest numbers ZeniMax and Bethesda released any less impressive.

In a press release sent out earlier today, ZeniMax announced that since Skyrim launched on November 11, the game has shipped 10 million copies worldwide. Now, granted, that’s not ten million sold – but it goes to show how much of a demand there is for the game.

The company didn’t say just how many out of that 10 million copies were actually sold, but ZeniMax did point out that said 10 million copies represents upwards of $650 million in retail sales since the game was released.

ZeniMax also boasted that Skyrim is the fastest-selling Steam title ever, and has outsold all other PC games by a factor of three to one in the month of its release.

“We are gratified that Skyrim continues to garner high review scores and accolades around the world,” said Robert Altman, Chairman and CEO of ZeniMax Media. “We are most grateful to our fans for their support and enthusiasm for the game, and their love of the hundreds of hours of gameplay it offers.

“We continue to strive to deliver the highest quality entertainment experience for everyone. 2012 will be another huge year for our fans, with the release of the Creation Kit, as well as exciting DLC which will add to the richness of this epic adventure.”
