The Official PlayStation Blog is sharing some updates on the sales figures of God of War, and as everyone expected, they are impressive.
God of War sold 3.1 million units from April 20th – April 22nd thus making it officially the fastest selling PS4 exclusive to date. For reference, Uncharted 4 sold 2.7 million copies in its first week and Horizon Zero Dawn sold 2.6 million in its initial two weeks. Santa Monica Studio Head, Shannon Studstill, had the following to say:
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.
If you couldn’t tell already, we’re fans of the new God of War. We certainly expected the sales to be high and we’re very happy for the team at Santa Monica Studio on their well deserved success.
