The Last of Us II has had a great launch, despite the negative feedback some of its fans have had about the game. Yesterday Naughty Dog announced that the game has sold a told of 4 million copies from June 19th to June 22nd. This means the game is now the fast-selling Playstation Exclusive of all time, beating Spiderman and God of War by almost 1 million copies.
Not only is this a huge win for Sony, but it is also a huge win for Naughty Dog and their team. Director and VP of Naughty Dog, Neil Druckmann had this to say…
“We are so immensely grateful to the millions of fans around the world that have played The Last of Us Part 2 and shared their experiences with us over the last week.
We set out to tell a new kind of story, one that deals with difficult themes and would challenge you in unexpected ways. Hearing how the experience has resonated with so many of you and witnessing the type of thoughtful discussions it has sparked has been so incredible.”
Knowing the ridiculous scrutiny Druckmann and his team has been hearing from the so-called “Fandom” of the game, I’m sure this made him and all others that love The Last of Us II feel great. We are so happy for the team at Naughty Dog and are still doing our own walkthrough of the game.
