The Last Of Us is a major success, sells 3.4 million units in 3 weeks
Not only is The Last Of Us a critical hit, it’s now a massive commercial success as well. Naughty Dog’s new fungus filled IP has gone on to sell 3.4 million copies in just 3 weeks time, a massive achievement for a new franchise.
President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida went on to say the following:
“The teams at Naughty Dog are true visionaries and their storytelling capabilities are second to none, this title is an undisputed demonstration of that. SCE continues to be committed to delivering unique gameplay experiences that redefine the interactive entertainment industry and The Last of Us is a perfect example.”
It’s wonderful to hear that the game has sold so well, especially this late in the console generation. Hopefully, it entices more developers and publishers to take more risks with new AAA IP’s going into the next console generation.
