Bethesda Softworks has very little to complain about this holiday season. Rage might not have hit on all of the cylinders that it could have, but The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim more than made up for it with its November 11 release. The long-awaited sequel has picked up numerous Game of the Year awards, including our own, and Bethesda also now confirms in a press release that more than 10 million copies have shipped.
In case that's too much math to think about for a Friday morning, that 10 million equates to more than $650 million in sales so far. Bethesda also notes that the mod-friendly PC version "outsold all other PC games by a factor of over three to one in the month of its release." Steam's Jason Holtman also confirms that the PC version of Skyrim is the fastest-selling release in the download service's history.
Not bad for a game filled with dragons that fly backwards and a law enforcement community made up entirely of former adventurers who were felled by arrows to the knee.
