Ghost Of Tsushima Has Officially Sold Over 5 Million Copies Since July
Given how abnormally long of a year 2020 has appeared to be thus far, it can easily be forgiven for forgetting that Ghost of Tsushima only released just four months ago. In that time, though, the Sucker Punch game cemented itself as one of the shining examples of PS4 excellence, being praised for its stunning visuals and thrilling open-world Samurai gameplay. Now, the game is celebrating a new milestone, as it’s been announced that Ghost of Tsushima has sold over 5 million copies since its release, making it the fastest-selling first party original PS4 exclusive.
The news comes by way of the folks over at IGN, which reported on a recent Tweet from PlayStation Wordwide Studios head Herman Hulst in which he congratulates the Sucker Punch team for the game’s success. IGN notes that, by comparison, Guerilla Games’ Horizon: Zero Dawn sold roughly 3.4 million copies in the same four-month window, while The Last of Us Part II sold 3 million copies in, well, the first three days after its release.
