Sucker Punch Productions' Ghost of Tsushima has been a smashing success for Sony, as the game has sold more than 5 million copies since launching on July 17 for PlayStation 4.

In fact, Ghost of Tsushima is the PlayStation 4's "fastest-selling first-party original" game, according to PlayStation Worldwide Studios head Hermen Hulst. Hulst made the announcement on Twitter, congratulating Sucker Punch on the "incredible achievement."

Now Playing: Ghost Of Tsushima Review

This metric is an increase from the statistic PlayStation shared in August, in which the company said Ghost of Tsushima was the "fastest-selling new IP." The open-world samurai action RPG sold more than 2.4 million copies within just the first three days of its launch.

Ghost of Tsushima has been a success, but it's not the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive. While the game reached over 5 million sales four months after launch, the critically acclaimed The Last of Us Part II exceeded more than 4 million copies three days after its June 19 release. And in the same period, Insomniac Games' Marvel's Spider-Man sold over 3.3 million copies.

The open-world RPG received a free update last month that added the cooperative Legends mode, a series of missions players can take on solo or as part of a four-person online squad. Legends' first raid, The Tale of Iyo, is now live for 100-level Ki players and above to tackle.

Ghost of Tsushima is playable on PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility. And thanks to Game Boost, the game can run at up to 60 fps with even further decreased load times.
