[UPDATED] Tekken 7 sales reach over 2.5 million copies at end of 2017

Tekken 7 sales continue to do millions.

UPDATE: On January 1, 2018 Flying Wonkey of Avoiding the Puddle issued a retraction to his original story that Tekken 7 sold over 3 million copies. Here’s what he had to say:

The original version of this post originally stated that Tekken 7 had exceeded 3 million copies. Upon double checking the source, this has turned out to be incorrect. The actual number of figures sold were mentioned during KawaiiFaceMiles & MainMan’s Tekken Talk stream to be over 2.5 million. The thing mentioned in 4Gamer was that Tekken 7 was fast approaching the 3 million mark, not that it already exceeded it. Apologies for the misinformation, the link to the original post has now be deleted.

We have updated this story to reflect the correct number of sales.

Original Story

Two months after Tekken 7 released in June of this year, it was widely reported that the highly anticipated fighting game sold over 2 million copies worldwide. Well, 2017 is coming to a close and that number has now exceeded over 3 million.

According to Avoiding the Puddle, Tekken 7 director Katsuhiro Harada is noted as quoting this figure to Japanese gaming site 4Gamer during their end of year interviews with notable figures from the gaming community. They also mention that Harada stated, “Tekken 7 has seen the most post launch support from the series and hopes to be able to continue updating it and giving the title support for the next year.”

This is great to hear, as phenomenal sales as this give more credence to what MarkMan stated during this month’s Tekken Talk, stating that additional content is “more likely” to come with the Season Pass after DLC3 (new character Noctis, and a new stage).

What would you like to see within Tekken 7 beyond the Noctis DLC that comes in Spring 2018? Harada and the Tekken project team are open to hear your requests. Let him know at @Harada_TEKKEN on Twitter.

Aziz Peregrino-Brimah aka Zee the CEO | Founder / Editor-in-chief of TekkenGamer | Gaming has been a passion of Zee's since the early days of Atari and ColecoVision. His first experience with Tekken was in the early 90's, and it was Tekken 3 that sealed the deal. True story... As a teenager Zee once received his Winn-Dixie paycheck and spent it all at the arcade the same day. Needless to say, his mother wasn't pleased.
