The Outer Worlds surpasses 5 million copies sold

Obsidian Entertainment has made a name for itself by creating a whole host of engaging and deep RPGs – perhaps known most fondly for their work on the much-loved Fallout: New Vegas. In 2019, the studio released a spiritual-successor to New Vegas in the form of The Outer Worlds. Celebrating the game’s 4th anniversary, Obsidian revealed that the game has now sold over 5 million copies.

Taking to Twitter to make the announcement, the official ‘The Outer Worlds’ page released an in-universe-styled tongue-in-cheek statement saying:

“The Board is excited to announce we have employed 5 Million spacers in the Halcyon Colony! We've sent you a mock apple and Spectrum Vodka to celebrate this achievement and our 4th anniversary! Do not fret; we've covered the cost of this celebration gift with your paycheck.”

While perhaps not quite as revered as Fallout: New Vegas, The Outer Worlds offered a fun space-faring RPG which scratched that Bethesda-style itch. Back in 2021, the game was confirmed to be getting a sequel, and with the title having now sold over 5 million copies, it is safe to assume that The Outer Worlds 2 will be even bigger and better than its predecessor.

It’ll be interesting to see how the game compares to Bethesda Game Studios’ recently-released Starfield – especially with both of them being space-focused sci-fi RPGs. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to hear more about the sequel.
