Sony has announced that sales of Naughty Dog’s latest game, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, has broken the platform holder’s first party record with 2.7 million copies sold during the game’s first week of availability.
It went on sale on May 10th and the impressive figure includes both physical copies and downloads of Nathan Drake’s last adventure.
Uncharted 4 sold more in its first week on sale than titles such as Killzone: Shadow Fall, inFamous: Second Son, The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Driveclub, Knack, and Ratchet & Clank.
Naughty Dog has confirmed that Uncharted 4 will be the first game in the series to receive single player DLC. The studio’s next full project has not yet been revealed but will likely be a sequel to The Last of Us. We may learn more about the developer’s plans during Sony’s E3 2016 press conference on June 13th.
Uncharted 4 had a rocky road to release, suffering numerous delayed and original writer Amy Hennig leaving the studio two years ago. Her departure saw The Last of Us writers and directors Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann scrap eight months’ work on the project when they took over.
It seems it was all worth it, however, as the game has enjoyed broad critical praise in addition to its sales success.
