There’s no doubt that God of War has been one of Sony’s most successful franchise – I mean a simple youtube search for God of War will yield hundreds of clips from the games with millions of views. But has the latest title lived up to the predecessor’s successes? Most definitely!
According to Sony, the game moved an impressive 3.1 million copies in it’s first three days on sale (April 20 – 22). That means God of War is also the PS4’s fastest-selling exclusive beating out the likes of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
Here’s what SIE Santa Monica studio head Shannon Studstill has to say about the game’s success.
“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.”
