By comparison, Horizon Zero Dawn managed to shift 2.6 million units across its first two weeks of launch. Many other PlayStation exclusives have released and sold more copies within their launch weekends, however a majority of the titles have been based on pre-existing franchises.
The Last Of Us Part II boasted a sales record for the company with 4 million copies sold within its first three days. Final Fantasy VII Remake also launched earlier this year and recorded a total of 3.5 million sales within its opening weekend.
Ghost Of Tsushima has garnered both critical and audience acclaim, with NME’s Jordan Oloman describing the game as “a serene samurai simulator” which “looks and feels amazing to play” in a four-star review.
A recent PS5 reveal event unveiled a host of new games coming to the system. Insomniac Games revealed two new titles with a spin-off Spider-Man game featuring Miles Morales, and a new Ratchet & Clank title that aims to push the graphics on the PS5.
Horizon Zero Dawn is also set to receive a sequel and continue to the story of Aloy as she seeks to continue her adventure across new lands.
