Elden Ring is the best-selling new game title in the past six years

Elden Ring is the best-selling new game title in the games industry in Europe since the release of The Division in 2016. It was also the best-selling game last month, with Horizon Forbidden West in second place.

According to the sales figures by gamesindustry.biz, Elden Ring is the biggest new game title in Europe since The Division appeared in 2016 and the biggest game release since Call of Duty: Vanguard last November. Elden Ring was the most sold on PC, followed by the PlayStation 5 and Xbox. The PlayStation 4 also accounted for 13 percent of sales.

In most countries, Elden Ring topped the list, with one major exception: in Germany, Pokémon Legends: Arceus sold the best in February. In the ranking for all of Europe, Horizon Forbidden West is still above that Pokémon game.

The best-selling console is still the Nintendo Switch. It is striking that the Xbox Series X/S has sold more than the PlayStation 5 for the first time. This may be due to the better availability of the Xbox Series S. Both the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5 are still poorly available .
