It was already clear even before the title was announced that God of War was going to be a hit. Fans of the franchise had long been waiting for this title to arrive and when it did, they went and picked it up in droves. Sony has revealed that God of War sold more than 5 million copies in its first month after launch.
Sony previously announced that God of War had actually become the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive title ever after the game sold more than 3.1 million copies in the first three days alone.
It has now been over a month after the title first came out and Sony revealed during its Investor Relations day that the title has been an absolute hit. Sony Interactive Entertainment president John Kodera mentioned that the game has sold more than five million copies during the first month alone. That’s sales to end customers meaning, not shipments.
When you consider that these figures are for a game that’s strictly single-player and exclusive to one platform, PlayStation 4, you realize that this is indeed a significant achievement. Sales of the title will only continue to grow in the months to come, even if they don’t sell five million copies every month, so it’s safe to assume that God of War will sell many million units more by the end of this year.
