The Last of Us Part II Has Sold Record Numbers for Naughty Dog
According to Senior Vice President at PlayStation Worldwide Marketing, Eric Lempel, The Last of Us Part II has become the fastest-selling first-party PS4 exclusive. The sequel to Naughty Dog’s stealth action game has sold more than four million copies within the first few days of sales data. Since it launched last week, The Last of Us Part II has been quite divisive and it seems like the attention brought to the title has resulted in sales. The Last of Us Part II is available exclusively for the PS4 right now and it will be playable on the PS5 when the next-gen console releases later this year.
“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,” said Vice President of Naughty Dog and Director of The Last of Us Part II Neil Druckmann. “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,” continued Neil Druckmann. “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.”
