Even before it launched everyone sort of knew that Fallout 4 was going to be a massive success. Now we have the official numbers though, and they are pretty insane. Fallout 4’s launch generated multiple records across the board, with Bethesda revealing that they shipped 12 million units to retailers. This represents $750 million in sales once they have been purchased by consumers.

On top of this came a number of other huge accomplishments in both the retail and digital realms. “Major retailers have informed Bethesda of the tremendous consumer interest in Fallout 4, with some noting it was the most pre-ordered game this year. In addition, the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition was the fastest-selling collector’s edition of any game in history at leading retailers. Following the release, Bethesda was advised that launch day sales at some of the leading retail chains were the largest of any game released this year. Bethesda is now shipping more Fallout 4 units to retailers to meet ongoing market demand.

“Digital sales of Fallout 4 are also breaking records. On Steam, Fallout 4 became the number one game played, surpassing the previous record for concurrent play with over 470,000 Fallout players. The companion app, Fallout Pip-Boy, became the number one game on the iTunes App Store. Fallout 4 also set the record as the most viewed game launch of all 2015 games, according to Twitch. Digital sales of Fallout 4 are also breaking records.

This has just been the first few days though, so Fallout 4 is surely looking at more success in the future.
