In the wake of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s purchase of Bluepoint Games — the studio behind highly-regarded remakes such as Shadow of the Colossus — the console holder has confirmed that Demon’s Souls has sold more than one million copies since its 2020 debut on PlayStation 5.
The news was buried in the official press release confirming the acquisition, sandwiched between praise for Bluepoint’s “console-defining visuals and gameplay” and the list of games in its portfolio. PlayStation confirmed that Demon’s Souls has sold 1.4 million copies as of September 19.
These numbers make it a comparatively modest success next to Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which has sold some 6.5 million copies. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart likewise topped a million sales in relatively short order.
Bluepoint’s Demon’s Souls remake released alongside the PlayStation 5, where it was hailed as one of the handful of truly “next-gen” releases available that fall. Our review called it “breathtakingly gorgeous,” noting that it plays “significantly better” than it did on PS3.
