Bethesda Softworks has announced that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has shipped more than seven million units since its launch last week, on November 11. The company expects the game to generate $450 million worldwide from the launch units alone.
Bethesda also revealed that more than half of the initial shipment was sold within the first two days of sale. This is inline with VGChartz sales numbers which has sales exceeding 3.4 million in its first 48 hours.
"We are grateful for the fans' response to Skyrim," said Robert Altman, CEO of ZeniMax Media. "Todd Howard and his team at Bethesda Game Studios have crafted a very special game. Anticipation for Skyrim has surpassed any game in our company's history, and we are pleased that sales and reviews have reflected the quality and hours of amazing gameplay it provides."
