The LEGO Star Wars games have always proven very popular, and that trend continues with news of the LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga sales numbers. The action-adventure game is a comprehensive take on all nine of the main series entries in the Star Wars franchise, from The Phantom Menace through to The Rise of Skywalker.
It’s one of the best Star Wars games on PC, and the latest entry to the brick-based series got off to a great start when it was announced that the co-op game had surpassed Elden Ring sales in its first week of release. Now, the LEGO Star Wars Twitter account has confirmed that the newest game in the series has reached a total player count of five million over the game’s first four months on sale.
In 2019, the official Star Wars website announced that the full LEGO Star Wars video game series has sold a combined 50 million copies worldwide across all its entries – which includes games centred on the previous two trilogies as well as one game based on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars film and animated series.
The launch of The Skywalker Saga on Steam was so big, in fact, that it actually eclipsed any LEGO or Star Wars game previously released on the service, and the space game has so far reached an all-time peak player count of 82,517.
