God of War Ragnarok Sales Break The Record for the Fastest-Selling Playstation Game

God of War Ragnarok Sales Break: Santa Monica Studio, a division of Sony, has announced that sales of God of War: Ragnarok have broken numerous records. It broke the record for the fastest-selling first-party launch title on PlayStation with 5.1 million units sold in its first week of release. As might be expected, it also has the highest sales total for the God of War series as a whole. Even so, the record-breaking 5.1 million first-day sales are nothing to scoff at. 

God of War Ragnarok Previous Sales Record

Records previously held by Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us: Part II have been shattered by God of War: Ragnarok.

It’s hard to put these numbers and records in perspective, especially when talking about the fastest-selling records as opposed to the best-selling records overall. PlayStation has made previous sales announcements, however, these have often been for more targeted games.

According to the company’s official Twitter in July 2020, Ghost of Tsushima is the best-selling first-party game for the PS4 in terms of being an original intellectual property. In just the first three days of sales, over 2.4 million copies were purchased. The first-party PS4 exclusive also broke sales records in Japan. Meanwhile, The Last of Us Part II had surpassed Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End to become the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive ever in the UK.

The director of God of War Ragnarok, Eric Williams, recently stated that the game will not receive downloadable content, though he would like to create a Castlevania game.

It was first shown on PlayStation LifeStyle — God of War Ragnarok has become the fastest-selling PlayStation game of all time.
