Spider-Man: Miles Morales has sold 4.1m copies

Insomniac's hit shifted over four million units in seven weeks

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales sold 4.1 million units worldwide in a month and a half.

Having launched on November 12, Insomniac's game had shifted these copies by December 31, 2020, Sony said in its earnings call.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales was the PS5's biggest launch game in the UK, though sales didn't quite reach the height of 2018's Marvel's Spider-Man in the country. The title debuted at No.3 in the UK charts, with 71% of its sales going to PS5. Sales for the title were boosted around Christmas, with a 45% rise that helped it climb to No.6.

In Japan, Spider-Man: Miles Morales sold 18,640 copies in four days, making it the top-selling PS5 game in the country at the time.

2018's Marvel's Spider-Man was the fastest-selling superhero game in US history, the biggest PlayStation exclusive launch ever, and it drove a 65% increase in games profits for Sony back then. As of November 2020, it had sold 20 million units worldwide.

Sony today shared its financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2020, announcing that the PS5 had sold 4.5 million units worldwide. Sony's Game and Network Services division reached $8.4 billion in revenue during the quarter.
