Skyrim Ships over 10 million with $650 million in Revenue

Zenimax has announced that Skyrim shipped over 10 million copies and made $650 million in revenue on all three platforms combined since it was released a little over a month ago. Below are some quotes:

“We are gratified that Skyrim continues to garner high review scores and accolades around the world,” said Robert Altman, Chairman and CEO of ZeniMax Media. “We are most grateful to our fans for their support and enthusiasm for the game, and their love of the hundreds of hours of gameplay it offers.

"We continue to strive to deliver the highest quality entertainment experience for everyone. 2012 will be another huge year for our fans, with the release of the Creation Kit, as well as exciting DLC which will add to the richness of this epic adventure."

"Skyrim is the fastest selling title in Steam’s history," said Jason Holtman, Director of Business Development at Valve Corporation.

"Bethesda’s commitment to and understanding of the PC as a gaming platform shows in the great review scores, spectacular launch, and continued high player numbers that Skyrim has received. We are delighted that Bethesda chose to use Steamworks to support Skyrim both at retail and digitally."

Skyrim also won GOTY at the 2011 Video Game Awards and became the most played game of 2011.

As long as Bethesda keeps rolling out the patches to fix the numerous bugs (especially in the PlayStation 3 version), all of this is more than well deserved for such a spectacular game.
