Naughty Dog marks The Last of Us' fifth birthday with 17m copies sold

Combined sales of The Last of Us and the Uncharted series are now pushing 60 million units

Five years after it first launched, Naughty Dog's The Last of Us has reached 17 million sales.

Naughty Dog revealed the figure on Twitter yesterday, as a way of marking the celebrated game's fifth anniversary.

The Last of Us has been released in two different versions since it launched on June 14, 2013: first on PlayStation 3, and then a remastered version for PlayStation 4 in April of the following year. Naughty Dog didn't provide a breakdown of sales between the two platforms.

It does reinforce the commercial standing of Naughty Dog, however. As of December 2017 the Uncharted series had sold 41 million copies; added to 17 million units of The Last of Us, the combined total for the studio's two biggest IPs is now likely more than 60 million.

And that figure will only rise with the release of The Last of Us Part II, which had an impressive showing at E3. The highly anticipated sequel still has no release date, or even a release window.
