The Last of Us Part 2 sells 4 million

Naughty Dog sequel tops Spider-Man to become fastest-selling first-party PS4 exclusive over first three days

The Last of Us Part 2 sold through more than 4 million copies in its first three days on sale, Sony announced today.

That makes the Naughty Dog sequel the fastest-selling first-party PlayStation 4 exclusive to date, topping previous holders of that title, God of War (3.1 million sold in three days) and Spider-Man (3.3 million in three days).

Over the weekend, it also claimed the title of Sony's fastest-selling PS4 game in the UK, although that distinction was wrested from 2016's Uncharted 4.

The Last of Us Part 2 had been set for a May 29 release, but Sony pushed that back and refunded all digital preorders for it after the COVID-19 pandemic created logistical concerns for the launch.
