It is not a secret that God of War has been a success. In addition to being acclaimed by critics, the PlayStation 4 exclusive has dominated several popularity charts. This has allowed that, to little more than a month of its launching, it has sold more than 5 million copies.
This figure was revealed by John Kodera, the president of PlayStation 4, who as part of a recent presentation with investors revealed that God of War has already sold more than 5 million copies. This makes it one of the fastest selling exclusives in the generation.
Recall that, during its first week in the market, God of War sold 3.1 million copies. This means that in the last 3 weeks the exclusive developed by Santa Monica Studios sold 1.9 million copies more.
To put things in perspective, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End reached the figure of 8.7 copies sold 6 months after its release. For its part, the latest official figures indicate that 7.6 million copies of Horizon: Zero Dawn have been shipped. While God of War is still far from reaching these exclusives, its rapid rate of sales seems to indicate that it is a matter of time before it is achieved.
In recent news, you should know that its photo mode is already available for a couple of weeks. God of War debuted exclusively on PlayStation 4 on April 20.
