The mega-successful trilogy of Dark Souls has birthed an entire genre, which continues to add new names to its list. These hardcore RPG titles offer a unique experience by sending you into a mystical world full of daunting monsters. The feeling of helplessness, followed by euphoria, when you make it past a world boss, serves as the most iconic aspect of the series.

Report from wccftech sheds light on the developer’s expectations following the successful releases of other titles. The teams expect the sales figure to go past the 4 million mark, as each iteration performed exceptionally better than its predecessor.

Dark Souls 3 managed to sell 3 million copies, while Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice bumped the number to 3.8 million. If this trend proves to be true, then Elden Ring’s performance will definitely break every single record of the company’s history.
