Nathan Drake doesn’t need to discover a lost city or an ancient treasure to make a lot of money. He just needs to star in another hit game.
Sony announced today that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End sold 2.7 million copies (physical and digital) worldwide during its first week. The PlayStation 4 exclusive launched on May 10. Sony also noted that Uncharted 4 is the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive in the North America region.
Before this, sales of the Uncharted series were at a total of 21 million.
“A huge congratulations goes out to (developer) Naughty Dog for an incredible feat,” Asad Qizilbash, marketing manager at Sony Computer Entertainment America, noted in on the PlayStation Blog. “The success of the game is a testament to the caliber of the team at Naughty Dog and their unwavering commitment to their fans.”
Uncharted 4 is supposed to be the last entry in the series. You have to wonder if Sony is a bit hesitant to leave behind one of its strongest franchises. Still, Naughty Dog is becoming a bankable brand itself (thanks to Uncharted and The Last of Us). The goodwill grown from Uncharted 4 could carry over to its next release, whatever it is.
