Sony Reveals That THE LAST OF US PART II Has Already Managed To Sell An Impressive 4 Million Units

Sony Interactive Entertainment has proudly announced that the critically acclaimed The Last of Us Part II has already managed to sell a very impressive 4 million units, not even a week after it was released.

The Last of Us Part II has been giving players a lot to talk about lately. Prior to its release, information that spoilt some details about the story were leaked, and this cause fans to be divided on some of the decisions developer Naughty Dog had made in regards to some of its characters.

Now that the game has already launched, fans of the series are still mixed on the path that Naughty Dog decided to take with The Last of Us Part II, but it seems that this has not affected sales in any negative way; on the contrary, it seems that the leak may have actually helped.

Today Sony Interactive Entertainment Senior Vice President Eric Lempel has proudly announced that Naughty Dog's critically acclaimed The Last of Us Part II has alredy managed to sell a very impressive 4 million units. What's even more impressive is that this was the amount of copies sold as of the 21st of June, which is only three days after the launch. 

The Last of Us Part II Creative Director Neil Druckmann thanked fans of the series for their support, and for making this possible — revealing that fans were their inspiration.

"We are so immensely grateful to the millions of fans around the world that have played The Last of Us Part II and shared their experiences with us over the last week. We set out to tell a new kind of story, one that deals with difficult themes and would challenge you in unexpected ways. Hearing how the experience has resonated with so many of you and witnessing the type of thoughtful discussions it has sparked has been so incredible. We’ve also been so inspired by your creativity — whether it’s your gorgeous Photo Mode shots, jaw-dropping gameplay GIFs, or the songs you’ve recorded using Ellie’s guitar. 

The Last of Us Part II was made possible thanks to the efforts of the hundreds of talented and passionate developers here at Naughty Dog. We can imagine no greater honor than seeing that same passion mirrored by the people playing it. Thank you for helping us reach this amazing milestone," reads Neil Druckmann's special message shared on the official PlayStation Blog.
