Warner Bros. Games gave more details on the game’s launch performance in a press release. It sold 3.2 million units globally in its first two weeks, smashing sales records across every platform, region and edition.
The game’s popularity isn’t all that surprising given the love many have for the Lego games and the Star Wars universe. But it’s nonetheless an admirable feat when you consider the vast amount of big-name franchises those iconic blocks have imitated over the years.
The game was on the road to success right from the start, with Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga seeing a recording-breaking launch on Steam. Its peak player count quickly eclipsed that of every other game in TT Games’ Lego series.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga spans the nine mainline Star Wars movies allowing you to unlock and play as over 350 characters. If that’s not enough for you, the roster can be expanded with character DLC packs. The most recent of these include familiar faces from Rogue One and a line of retro minifigs.
