No Caption Provided

The Last of Us, Naughty Dog's acclaimed 2013 PlayStation 3 action game, has now sold more than 6 million copies worldwide. Sony announced the news today on the PlayStation Blog.

It's not clear if the 6 million figure is sold-in (sold to retailers) or sold-through (sold to consumers). We have reached out to Sony for comment. The last sales update for The Last of Us came three weeks after the game's release in June 2013 when Sony announced that the game had sold 3.4 million copies.

Do strong sales for The Last of Us signal that a sequel is on the way? According to creative director Neil Druckmann, there is a 50-50 shot that Naughty Dog will make a second game. Druckmann and other Naughty Dog creative chiefs are currently working on a Last of Us movie as well.

Just this week, The Last of Us won Best Game Overall at the BAFTAs in London. For more, check out GameSpot's review.
