In what is a remarkable achievement, God of War sales has exceeded 10 million units since the game was released on PlayStation 4 last year April, according to Sony.
Developed by Santa Monica Studio, the latest God of War brings back the legendary Kratos and his son, Atreus on a journey to fulfil the dying wishes of his wife. Not only has the game sold over 10 million units, but it’s also the fastest selling PS4 exclusive game ever. The milestone was revealed by Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO, Jim Ryan during his presentation at Sony’s IR Day, 2019 where further details were also revealed about the Next-Gen console, dubbed the PS5. God of War joins the Uncharted and The Last of US series who have achieved similar milestone as Sony’s best-selling games.
All these milestones have helped Sony hold the stronghold as the number 1 gaming console with its PlayStation 4 crossing over 91.6 million units of sales globally, twice as much as its competitor, the Xbox.
God of War won Game of the Year 2018 at the Annual Game Awards, in a close battle with other Sony exclusives, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Amazing Spiderman.
Wanting to reveal what process went on in making the game, Sony released a documentary on YouTube titled “God of War – Raising Kratos”. This revealed the effort Santa Monica Studio put in to reinvent one of the greatest gaming characters.
The Last of Us Part II is expected to come out later this year and is one of the most anticipated games of all time.
