Skyrim hits 20m copies sold

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has surpassed 20m copies sold across all platforms, Bethesda has announced.

The studio revealed the figure yesterday, which accounts for retail and digital sales of the game and its Legendary Edition. Though the company failed to mention if it was referring to units shipped or sold regarding the milestone’s retail portion.

Skyrim (along with the aforementioned Legendary Edition) is available for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Meanwhile, Bethesda is rumoured to be hard at work on Fallout 4.
