Sony has announced that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End sold over 2.7 million copies worldwide during its first week on sale.
The figure makes the Naughty Dog’s critically acclaimed sequel the best-selling first-party title for Sony’s current-generation to date in North America and Europe. Both digital and physical sales are included.
It was previously confirmed that Uncharted 4 got off to a great start in the U.K., topping the All Format Chart upon its debut and managing to hold onto the top spot for a second week despite tough competition.
"A huge congratulations goes out to Naughty Dog for an incredible feat," commented Asad Qizilbash, Marketing Manager for Sony Interactive Entertainment America (SIEA). "The success of the game is a testament to the calibre of the team at Naughty Dog and their unwavering commitment to their fans."
Uncharted 4 was released on May 10 exclusively for the PS4, and marks Naughty Dog’s last title in the near-decade old franchise. The game picks up a few years after Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, and sees Nate teaming up his long-lost brother, Sam, as the pair embark on a globe-trotting hunt for Henry Avery’s lost treasure horde.
While very much Uncharted at its core, the game has seen a number of improvements compared to the last time we stepped into Nate’s boots, including large-scale environments to explore, a new grappling hook to facilitate traversal, plus enhanced melee and stealth mechanics.
Uncharted 4 will receive extensive multiplayer support that will run until spring 2017, and in a first for the franchise, will also benefit from a single-player expansion inspired by The Last of Us.
