Bethesda’s 2019 RPG The Outer Worlds has now sold over 5 million units. This despite having been available on Game Pass on day one, which makes the feat all the more impressive especially for a new IP.
Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer posted on social media congratulating developer Obsidian Entertainment on the milestone.

Spencer also took a moment to thank Private Division, who handled the game’s publishing duties. Private Division is a subsidiary of Take Two Interactive.
The Outer Worlds was originally released on Xbox One, and has been re-released for the current gen Xbox Series X|S console. That release featured visual improvements, a heightened level cap, and all the DLC content.
Presumably those five million units sold apply to all platforms; the game is available on PlayStation 4/5, Nintendo Switch, Steam and Windows PC in addition to Xbox.
The forthcoming sequel, The Outer Worlds 2, will be Xbox exclusive. It will also be developed by Obsidian, and other than that not much has been revealed about the game at this point.
