Sony Interactive Entertainment is happy to announce that the recently released video game The Last of Us Part II is now the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive ever.
We reported this information a previous article, but now we have the official numbers coming from SIE. Senior Vice President PlayStation Worldwide Marketing Eric Lempel revealed that the game has sold more than 4 million copies as of June 21. The executive thank the fans for this new milestone since without them the game would not have reached this feat.
Naughty Dog Vice President and Game Director Neil Druckmann has this to say:
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.
The Last of Us Part II is now available on PlayStation 4.
