Final Fantasy 15 Ships 5M Copies, Best Start For Franchise

Final Fantasy 15 has seen the most successful launch of any game in the franchise. Square Enix reports 5 million copies (including digital sales) have already shipped worldwide since November 29. Famitsu says the title has also set a new record for launch day sales in Japan.

Part of the game's early success comes from it launching around the world on the same day, something that didn't occur with earlier franchise members.

Hajima Tabata, director of Final Fantasy 15, previously said the studio would view 10 million sales as "success."
