Uncharted series sales pass 41 million

More than a quarter of total units sold in the the past 18 months

Naughty Dog has announced the Uncharted franchise has sold well over 40 million units to date.

The milestone was revealed during a tenth anniversary panel at the surprisingly quiet PlayStation Experience this weekend, PushSquare reports. The studio confirmed lifetime sales of 41.7m units since the first Uncharted on PS3.

This figure not only includes the four main games, but also this year's standalone expansion Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and 2015's remaster collection The Nathan Drake Collection, which brought the original trilogy to PS4.

Interestingly, the series' total sales was last reported as 28 million back in May 2016, meaning 13.7 million units - more than a quarter of lifetime units - have been sold in the last 18 months.

These have no doubt been driven by the huge success of Uncharted 4, the highest-rated game of last year, plus the PlayStation's superior install base this console generation.

The original game, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, released for PS3 in 2007. While Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was positioned as a finale of sorts for the main storyline, it's a safe bet there will be more Uncharted games released in future.
