In a tweet late on Thursday, Hulst wrote: [Ghost of Tsushima] is our fastest-selling first get together authentic PS4 game with greater than 5 million copies offered since its debut in July. What an unbelievable achievement by [Sucker Punch Productions]!” The official Sucker Punch Twitter account retweeted Hulst and added: “We’re thrilled and absolutely blown away by all of the support!

The key phrase right here is “original” as a result of there are different PlayStation Studios titles which have carried out finer than Ghost of Tsushima. Marvel’s Spider-Man offered 3.Three million models within the first three days alone, however that is not an authentic title because the IP is owned by Marvel, naturally. The Last of Us Part II, launched a month previous to Ghost of Tsushima, offered over Four million copies within the first three days, but it surely’s not thought of an authentic title as it is a sequel to a longtime property.
Horizon Zero Dawn was the closest competition as but, having offered 2.6 million copies in first two weeks and going as much as 3.Four million models complete in lower than 4 months, across the similar window as for Ghost of Tsushima, which has been out for rather less than 4 months.
Post launch, Sucker Punch has delivered a free co-op multiplayer mode in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, and a free 60fps upgrade for the recently-launched PlayStation 5. A sequel to Ghost of Tsushima is alleged to be in improvement, given Sucker Punch has had new job listings up for writers with a information of feudal Japan.
