Last month saw the release of PlayStation first-party title God of War, Sony has now revealed the game has sold over 3.1 million copies in just the first three days.
This makes God of War PlayStation’s fastest-selling first party title on PS4. The eight-year franchise hiatus that lead up to the release of God of War, has meant a return to form for the platform, with God of War now one of the most critically acclaimed games in PS4 history.
“I would like to personally thank the millions of fans around the world who decided to hop 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 amazing team at Santa Monica Studio. The passion for storytelling across the team is undeniable, and I hope it’s clear that we never settle for what’s conventional. We look forward to hearing more about how fans are enjoying the game and creating new memories of their favourite God of War gameplay moments that will be remembered for decades to come.” said Shannon Studstill, VP, Product Development, Head of Santa Monica Studio, SIE.
Congratulations to Santa Monica Studio on such a well-deserved achievement for an epic title.
