Doing rather better, and in a much shorter space of time, is Kingdom Hearts III which has managed to ship over 5 million copies since it launched just a few days ago. This makes it the fastest selling game in the franchise by a considerable margin.

Next up to toot their own trumpets are developers Rare with Craig Duncan tweeting that their player base is “super healthy”.
4/ Our player population is super healthy on both PC and Xbox & has been since launch. While we don’t tweet usage data reactively, we will figure out how we share more stats on this soon to give context why players don’t need to worry about our live player or platform populations
