Sony Santa Monica’s debut PS4 title has become the fastest selling PS4 exclusive in just the first 3 days from its launch on Apr 20th.
The game sold 3.1 million copies in that time, a remarkable achievement no doubt bolstered by that highly positive critical reception.
God of War was welcomed with universal acclaim from critics and fans as the reviews poured in when the embargoes were lifted earlier last month. Our very own Kyle Prahl has still not been able to pick up his jaw from the floor yet. You can read his review of God of War right here.
Sony Santa Monica truly managed to successfully reinvent the franchise by not just setting the game in a whole new mythology, but also by innovating the core gameplay and narrative elements without alienating its core fan base.
Now is the time for every living soul that contributed towards the development of God of War to celebrate their well-deserved success.
As for what’s in store for the future of God of War and Sony Santa Monica? The director of the PS4 exclusive has mentioned that he has plenty of ideas for a sequel during a recent discussion between him and the folks over at Kotaku.
