Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition launched earlier this March for Steam and now according to sales tracker SteamSpy, the game has sold through 300k copies on Steam alone. The sales are impressive because of the fact that the game launched after more than 1 and half year of the original release, and at a much steeper price of $49.99 compared to other games. It is also available on the Windows 10 Store and Origin aside from Steam.
The sales are tracking ahead or similar to Nier Automata, which also launched on PC one week after its release on PS4, and currently stands at 800k copies sold after a little over one year.
Final Fantasy XV was a smashing success for Square Enix when it originally launched for the PS4 and Xbox One back in November 2016. The game shipped 5 million copies in day one recouping its development cost, and has managed to ship 7.5 million copies so far before the release of the Royal/Windows Edition.
Final Fantasy XV is the 15th entry in the long running series. The game was directed by Hajime Tabata and developed by Square Enix’s Business Division 2. It was initially released for the PS4 and Xbox One. The Royal Edition of the game launched this March for the PS4 and Xbox One while the PC version is available on Steam, Origin and Windows 10.
