The Last of Us Part 2 Was The 5th Best Selling Game Of April In Europe

Expert Verified By

More Impressive Sales!

Naughty Dog has produced various critically acclaimed titles, one of which is The Last of Us. The first game was released for the PS3, and it saw a sequel in 2020, The Last of Us Part 2.

Much like its predecessor, the sequel received fantastic reviews from critics and quickly became one of the most successful games on PS4. The game is still selling well, and The Last of Us Part 2 recently became the 5th best-seller of April in Europe.

Why it matters: The Last of Us Part 2 came out in 2020, but the game has remained relevant nearly three years later. It also beat record-breaking releases like Hogwarts Legacy last month.

Looking at the data, recent releases like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Resident Evil 4 Remake failed to keep up with the Naughty Dog title. Since its release, The Last of Us Part 2 has sold over 10 million copies.

Recently, The Last of Us Tv show from PlayStation became highly popular, leading to a massive surge in sales for the franchise. The show has finished airing, but the franchise appears to have continued this sales momentum.

Last month, The Last of Us Part 2 was also the most downloaded PS4 game on PSN. Therefore, the game is still selling well in Europe, the US, and Canada, among other regions.

The Last of Us Part 2 delivered a gut-wrenching narrative involving two main characters, Ellie and Abby. While parts of the game received a mixed reception from some, it went on to win many awards, including the Game of The Year title at TGA 2020.

Recent rumors have claimed that Naughty Dog is working on a third entry in the Last of Us universe, and a multiplayer spin-off is also in development. The latter is expected to be released later this year, with more information coming soon.
