Head of PlayStation Studios, Hermen Hulst, has announced that God of War Ragnarök has set the record for the fastest-selling first party PlayStation game to date.
The game has reportedly sold 5.1 million copies as of its debut week, outpacing every other PlayStation Studios game launch and breaking franchise records. The last PlayStation Studios title to raise the benchmark for the honour was The Last of Us Part 2 in 2020.
It’s a well-deserved victory for a game that we scored a 9.5/10 in our review, saying “God of War Ragnarok is a triumph. Santa Monica Studio has successfully taken everything that was great about the last game and amplified it while correcting just about every problem area and then some.”
