Uncharted 4 Sells 8.7 Million Copies
Naughty Dog's latest entry in the Uncharted series is putting up big numbers.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is not only a critical darling, but the action-adventure game is also selling very well. Sony has announced that the PlayStation 4-exclusive has sold through more than 8.7 million copies around the world as of December 21. This figure includes physical copies of the game and units sold digitally through the PlayStation Store.
It was not mentioned in Sony's press release, but the company is likely counting Uncharted 4 sales through hardware bundles. Unlike the Xbox One, which has lots and lots of available bundles, the PS4's main bundle appears to be the Uncharted 4 package, which likely helped boost game sales.
Uncharted 4, which came out in May 2016, sold 2.7 million copies during its first week, which was well below the 3.8 million that Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception sold on day-one. However, that game was released some years into the PlayStation 3's life and, therefore, had a larger audience to sell to.
The next Uncharted game is this year's Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. This is a standlone DLC game that focuses on the characters Nadine and Chloe, not series star Nathan Drake.
Sony also recently announced that it sold 6.2 million PS4 consoles during the holiday season, helping boost total sales to 53.4 million.
