God of War: Ragnarok sold more copies in its release week than any other first-party PlayStation game.
Sony says that with 5.1 million sales in the first week of the game, The Last of Us Part II, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Ragnarok’s predecessor God of War (2018). The action-adventure saga, released on November 9, has been eagerly awaited for a long time. In addition to selling tons of copies, the game currently has a 94 percent rating on Metacritic based on 135 critical reviews. Although this is the same score as the previous game, God of War: Ragnarok seems to be more popular.
With Leviathan Ax and Blades of Chaos, the game, which has come to the fore with its satisfying combat visuals and a certain fan base for years, has many fans around the world. The first three-day sales were announced for The Last of Us Part II (four million in 2020), Marvel’s Spider-Man (3.3 million in 2018), and God of War (3.1 million in 2018).
However, we can say that Ragnarok’s first-week sales came to the fore as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which sold 2.7 million in the first week of 2016, almost doubled its sales. God of War: Ragnarok has become one of the company’s best-selling games, but it’s no surprise. Because most people around the world were eagerly waiting for the new version of the game. In this context, the game that meets the expectations may sell more.
