The Last of Us Part 2 has been out on the PS4 for a little over a week. Easily one of the most anticipated titles of this year, physical copies were sold like hotcakes. Enthusiasts rushed over to grab their own copy as it was only natural for someone to grab over Naughty Dog’s biggest work yet.
As of June 21st, the studio confirms over 4 million copies sold making it the best selling game exclusive on the PS4. The folks over at the studio gave their gratitude and thanked fans for believing in them despite all this time and delays.
The game itself was targetted by many to be extremely disappointing especially when one considers the perfectionism of Naughty Dog. With a totally unique directional perspective and a sorrowful storyline, there was a lot more than a few things that made the story a bit too heavy for many.
We set out to tell a new kind of story, one that deals with difficult themes and would challenge you in unexpected ways.Neil Druckmann
Despite all that criticism, the studio came on top with setting a brand new record for most sales. However, things don’t end here. With two top of the line exclusives set for release next month including Ghost of Tsushima, there’s a lot more to look forward to with the PS4. It seems that the PS4 would keep on getting new titles as of now while we await further notices.
