It has been exactly five years since the original “The Last Of US” title launched. Back in 2013, prior to the release of the PlayStation 4, Sony’s first-party studio, Naughty Dog announced a new title called ‘The Last Of Us’. The game was an immediate blockbuster thanks to its excellent graphics, storyline and excellent mechanics at the time and is what defined Sony’s exclusive lineup for quite a while.
Being a Sony exclusive title, fans of the title actually held onto the game for more than a while. Following the release of the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Slim, Sony announced their beast of a console, the PlayStation 4 Pro which introduced 4K HDR gaming into the console space, giving Sony an excellent edge at showcasing what their titles are capable of. Soon after Sony made the PlaySyation 4 Pro public, the folks over at Naughty Dog launched an update to actually allow the golden title with some 4K bling which re-ignited the flames for Sony’s exclusive title.
Fast-forward five years into the present and it seems like the game is still going strong as the company has announced some amazing results regarding its sales figures. Today, the studio, Naughty Dog announced their ‘The Last Of Us’ had sold over 17M units since it first launched on the PlayStation 3 back on June 14th, 2013. Given that the title was an excellent hit on the PlayStation 3 with the title selling over 10M copies on the PlayStation 3, we could appropriately estimate that the PlayStation 4 port actually sold 7M copies along the way to cater Sony’s next-gen console.
Now that fans await for the successor of the title patiently, Sony has dropped the bomb when they announced that the second installment in the franchise is on its way. Here’s the trailer for ‘The Last Of Us Part II’
