The PS4 has been graced with a lot of great exclusives over the years including the likes of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Horizon Zero Dawn and more. Despite all of them, none of those aforementioned games have sold as fast as God of War has this year.
Sony has announced today that God of War has officially become the fastest selling PS4 exclusive of all time. The game managed to sell an astounding 3.1 million copies in its first three days on sale from April 20th until April 22nd.
The game sold many copies thanks to a lot of great reviews and excellent word of mouth. It will be interesting to see if it can reach even higher sales once more people get a chance to play it over the coming year.
Santa Monica head, Shannon Studstill, posted the following message to fans: “I would like to personally thank the millions of fans around the world who decided to embark on Kratos’ latest adventure with us. Your support is truly inspiring, and it’s a reason why we push ourselves every day to go beyond the boundaries of play. I’d also like to thank our Creative Director, Cory Barlog, and Director of Product Development, Yumi Yang and our entire amazing team at Santa Monica Studio. The belief in the game’s vision and the passion for storytelling across the team is undeniable. We look forward to hearing more about how fans are creating new memories of their favorite God of War gameplay moments that will be remembered for a long time“.
The next PS4 exclusive fans can look forward to now is Detroit: Become Human. That game is coming out worldwide on May 25th, 2018.
