Uncharted: The Lost Legacy First Week at Retail Sales Aren’t Exactly Impressive

The Lost Legacy First Week at Retail Numbers Are In

Leaping from column to column, exploring exotic and gorgeous real-world locations, and searching for mysterious, legendary treasure. This past summer, Naughty Dog was at it again, but this time around Nathan Drake is kicking up his heels and letting someone else throw themselves into mortal danger. Yes, the Uncharted series returned with Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Today, some sales numbers have surfaced and the result isn’t too shabby but it isn’t exactly impressive either.

The action adventure game from Sony Interactive Entertainment and Naughty Dog – Uncharted: The Lost Legacy – sold 596,237 units the first week at retail, according to VGChartz estimates. First-week sales can be viewed on the VGChartz Global Weekly Chart for the week ending August 26.

Granted for a standalone DLC, those are impressive numbers; however, when you consider the PS4 user base and how fans gobbled up Uncharted 4 in droves, under 600k seems a little underwhelming. This being said, we completely recognize digital sales and season pass holders factor into the overall numbers which must be considerably higher.

Breaking down the sales by region, the game sold best in Europe with 377,850 units sold (63%), compared to 116,148 units sold in the US (19%). Looking more closely at Europe, the game sold an estimated 75,633 units in the UK, 60,843 units in Germany, and 56,551 units in France.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy released for the PlayStation 4 in North America on August 22 and in Europe on August 23.
