This doesn’t come as a surprise since Starfield outperformed Mortal Kombat 1 and EA Sports FC 24 in September which have sold a large amount of units across multiple platforms. Within its first few weeks of release, Starfield reached over 10 million players making it the biggest Bethesda Softworks game to release in history.
