Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Sold Over 2 Million in Under 10 Days

Will this mean we get another one?

Activision has announced that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has sold over two million copies worldwide in under 10 days. This is another major coup for FromSoftware, especially since Sekiro is a new IP divorced from its popular Dark Souls series.

Sekiro is a new action game from FromSoftware based on a fantastical, medieval Japan setting. The player assumes the role of the "Wolf," a shinobi who must rescue his lord from feudal leader. Unlike Dark Souls, Sekiro is an action game with light RPG mechanics. The rest of the Wolf's skillsets are devoted to mastering different Shinobi arts.

FromSoftware first teased Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at the 2017 Video Game Awards. Many believed it to be another continuation of one of FromSoftware's existing RPG IPs, but it ended up surprising everyone when it unveiled its ninja action game at E3.

We spoke with Dark Souls creator and Sekiro director Hidetaka Miyazaki at E3 last year to get a better understanding of Sekiro, and how it differs from past FromSoftware games. You can also read our Sekiro review here.

Despite the difference in genre, thematically Sekiro focuses on the same themes as Dark Souls, namely the recursive cycle of violence. So even if fans prefer the RPG stylings of Dark Souls, they can still find common ground in Sekiro's story.
