Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is one of 2019's best games from a critical perspective, and Activision has shared that they're also delighted with its sales.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is one of the year’s best games, and Activision has shared that its sales performance was “better than expected.”

Developed by From Software, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is very much akin to Dark Souls and Bloodborne. It’s admittedly a tad easier than the Soulsborne properties, but it still provides fans with a grueling challenge.

A heated debate about whether it should've had an easy mode to be more accessible and respectful to players roamed the internet, but the game still sold over two million copies in less than ten days on the market.

And Activision has said that its release was “highly successful”.

During Activision’s financial conference call related to 2019’s first quarter, the company’s Chief Operative Officer, Collister “Coddy" Johnson, commented on how happy Activision is with Sekiro’s performance.

“Q1 also saw the highly successful release of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the result of Activision’s approach to selectively partnering with high-quality developers to leverage our publishing and marketing scale and expertise,” said Johnson. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the collaboration, execution, and response to FromSoftware’s critically acclaimed title from gaming communities worldwide.”

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
