Recently, Sony IR Day 2018 was held, with heads of different divisions coming together and giving reports on the state of the company. John Kodera, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, announced that God of War has sold 5 million copies in one month. (Please be aware that the source audio is in Japanese.)
This is definitely an impressive feat. We knew from previous comments that God of War sold 3.1 million copies in three days but 5 million in one month is incredible. At this point, I think God of War is definitely one of the IPs that Sony will double down on, per their comments on the PlayStation 4 lifecycle and business plan moving forward.
If you haven’t grabbed God of War yet and you’d like to learn more about it, here’s the synopsis:
From Santa Monica Studio and creative director Cory Barlog comes a new beginning for one of gaming’s most recognizable icons. Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest.
