Over 12 million units were shipped to meet day one demand, with $750 million in sales earned. Major retailers told Bethesda about the crazy amount of customer interest in Fallout 4, as well how it was the most pre-ordered game this year.

It doesn’t take much to see how popular Fallout 4 is. The pip-boy collector’s edition sold out within just two hours of its release, and holds the record for being the fastest-selling collector’s edition of any game in history. Bethesda is planning on shipping out more copies of Fallout 4 to meet the hordes of fans waiting to play.

That’s not even mentioning the many fans already playing the game. Fallout 4 continues to break records, becoming the number one game played on Steam with over 470,000 concurrent players.

It even sounds like Bethesda is a pretty big fan of Fallout 4:

“We’re extremely proud of Todd Howard, Game Director at Bethesda Game Studios, and his experienced team of developers for their talent and dedication in creating this extraordinary game. Fallout 4 is a masterpiece in game development and storytelling, providing fans hundreds of hours of fun as they explore and are challenged by this fascinating, beautifully crafted world.”

— Vlatko Andonov, President of Bethesda Softworks

Looks like Fallout 4 is off to a great launch, and it will be interesting to see what the numbers look like at the end of the month.
