The Last of Us Part II is the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive.
The Last of Us Part II has officially become the fastest-selling first-party PlayStation 4 exclusive. Sony announced (via Games Industry) that more than 4 million copies were sold within the first three days.
The Naughty Dog sequel tops previous record holders, God of War and Spider-Man, both selling over 3 million copies in the same three-day span.
The game also stakes claim to Sony’s fastest-selling PS4 game in the United Kingdom. The previous holder of that title is another Naughty Dog classic, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
The follow-up title to 2013’s The Last of Us has seen its fair share of negative criticism and controversy, but that does not appear to have halted it from meeting or even exceeding expectations for Sony.
Originally scheduled for release on February 21, 2020, The Last of Us Part II was delayed until May 29, 2020, and again until the true release date of June 19, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
