There were concerns that Octopath Traveler 2 may have underperformed, despite it receiving a stellar reception from critics, but news today confirms that title has topped one million units. Obviously, we’ll need to wait and see whether that measures up to Square Enix’s notoriously aggressive targets, but it certainly paints a more positive spin on the sequel’s fortunes – at least for now.

This number is across all platforms, of course, which includes PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The original Octopath Traveler never released on PlayStation platforms – it was a timed console exclusive initially, but did later release on Xbox – however the sequel is a standalone story, and therefore doesn’t require prior knowledge of the previous game to be enjoyed.

Strong word of mouth is likely to have helped the title to reach this milestone, as it’s generally considered one of the better releases of 2023 thus far – and it’s obviously been a great year for new games in general.
