Naughty Dog’s followup to its 2013 post-apocalyptic hit has surpassed Insomniac’s 2018 Spider-Man. This shouldn’t be a surprise due to the hype behind TLoU Part 2, but it does show insight into how it may go above one of PlayStation’s biggest hits in recent years. Spider-Man sold 3.3 million copies in its first three days. Meanwhile, God of War was right behind it during its first three days as it sold 3.1 million copies.
No word was given for other parts of the world on how pre-orders may look in the U.S. or across Asia.
Sony has been strong to gain more people to ride the hype train with the recent State of Play, which showed off new gameplay and details on what to expect when stepping into Ellie’s shoes in her quest for revenge. Also, Naughty Dog has posted a series of videos to deliver new insight into the development process.
The Last of Us Part 2 has faced various delays due to the coronavirus. It was initially set for February then got pushed to May, and afterward, it got hit with an indefinite delay. When leaks appeared online, the game reached its final date posted for June 19. Most recently, the latest issue has come up as Middle Eastern gamers have not been able to pre-order the game, leading to speculation that it may be banned entirely due to Ellie’s sexuality.
The Last of Us Part 2 is available to pre-order for PS4.
