With the first half of the year over, the latest data for game sales across Europe has revealed that Elden Ring has been the biggest seller so far. Chasing Bandai Namco’s blockbuster game were several other big titles, including Pokemon Legends: Arceus, FIFA 22, and Grand Theft Auto V.
According to GSD Market Data (via GamesIndustry.Biz), 76.1 million games were sold across Europe during the first six months of the year, with 44 million of those sales coming from digital stores. It’s worth noting here that Nintendo doesn’t share any sales data for digital games sold by it, although other AAA developers and publishers provided numbers.
Nintendo might actually have done better in the European charts with Pokemon Legends: Arceus, but because it hasn’t released any digital sales data, first and second place goes to Elden Ring and FIFA 22 respectively.
