Niko Partners’ Daniel Ahmad reveals a new sales milestone for the title.
Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part 2 is perhaps one of the biggest releases of the past few years. However, the first game continues to be a huge success for Sony. According to Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad on Twitter, The Last of Us has sold over 20 million copies on PS4 and PS3. It was last reported to have sold 17 million copies as of June 2018.
The Last of Us launched for the PlayStation 3 in 2013 and stuck out for its story-telling and graphical prowess. It would be re-released on the PS4 as The Last of Us Remastered and see several visual improvements. Along with the base game, there was also the Left Behind DLC which could be played standalone.
The Last of Us Part 2 releases on February 21st 2020 for PS4. Along with being “about 50 percent bigger” than the previous game, it will also have larger areas akin to Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
Uncharted 2 sold over 6m copies on PS3, prior to the release of the Uncharted Collection on PS4.
Naughty Dog's reputation has grown significantly since then and today Uncharted 4 has sold over 16m copies on PS4 and The Last of Us has sold over 20m copies on PS3/PS4. https://t.co/w1OJVe1Af0
