Game news God of War Ragnarok is even stronger than The Last of Us Part II and Marvel’s Spider-Man!
Sony keeps breaking its own records! As proof, the first sales figures for God of War: Ragnarok have fallen, and they are more than impressive.
Kratos defeats Ellie, Joel and Spider-Man!
It’s been just over ten days now since Kratos came to absorb players on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 with his latest adventure, we’ve named God of War: Ragnarok. And as you can imagine, this last proposal has won over a lot of players. Moreover, the first figures were unveiled just a few minutes ago and, for Sony, this is a new record.
With each launch, a new feat for the Japanese manufacturer: in 2018, God of War recorded a total of 3.1 million sales in just one weekend. A record broken a few months later by Marvel’s Spider-Man with its 3.3 million copies sold in the same period. It was then necessary to wait for the release of The Last of Us Part II in 2020 to once again pulverize the scores with a total of 4 million sales. Since then, the record is unbeaten, but it was without counting on the power of persuasion of the God of war.
A first record for God of War: Ragnarok
Today, we learn that this record is now in the hands of God of War: Ragnarok. Indeed, always in a weekend, the title has sold more than 5 million copies. In other words, Sony is facing its best launch here.
Congratulations to Santa Monica for making God of War: Ragnarok the best first-party game launch in PlayStation history! 🪓
