Released on Tuesday for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Final Fantasy XV has already sold over five million copies worldwide, making it the fastest-selling game in Final Fantasy franchise history.

After clarifying that the sales number comes from combined day one shipment and digital sales, Square Enix said they’ll now continue to work on DLC and updates for Final Fantasy XV:

Receiving critical acclaim from fans across the world for its beautiful world design and graphical quality, combined with open-world freedom and an exciting new battle system, the game is the first in the series’ history to have a simultaneous global launch. Square Enix will continue to work on projects to expand and enhance customer enjoyment of Final Fantasy XV, releasing additional content and associated series products.

In Japan, Square Enix says Final Fantasy XV set a record for most first-day digital sales. In the UK, retailers are reporting that it’s performing about the same as Skyrim Special Edition.

Before the launch of Final Fantasy XV, the Final Fantasy series had sold over 115 million copies worldwide.

During a recent livestream, Game Director Hajime Tabata said the free Holiday Pack DLC is scheduled for release by the end of 2016. It will add New Game Plus and a Level Cap Creation Feature.
