Fallout: New Vegas Cashes In To More Than 5 Million Copies

The Fallout crowd just keeps getting bigger and bigger, and now the latest sales numbers for New Vegas show just how powerful the franchise is. It's sold more than 5 million copies in just a matter of weeks.

The game launched on October 19 to some fanfare and hype, but nothing on the scale of a Grand Theft Auto or Call of Duty title. Nevertheless, the cult following for the Fallout series has continued to expand and made New Vegas one of the most successful launches in Bethesda's history.

Bethesda has managed to keep players happy by almost immediately launching a mod tool for PC gamers to customize the game at their own will. Meanwhile, bugs and glitches that plagues all versions of the game were addressed in as timely a manner as possible with continued communication by the company's PR staff.

Between the standard version of the game and the jam-packed special edition, the game has already brought in more than $300 million in revenue to Bethesda, which will continue to ride the sales wave through the holiday season. It is the only game published by Bethesda for the 2010 year.

Next year, however, will bring multiple heavy-hitting titles including Doom 4, Brink, and Rage.

As for New Vegas, users are still reporting some issues. Bethesda said it will continue to work on fixing these, and plans to release a "comprehensive" patch very soon.
