It appears that Kratos and Atreus are now Sony’s top stars. God of War 2018 delivered over 23 million units.
God of War (2018) was already quite popular when it first launched on the PS4, but it appears that its release on the PC has significantly increased sales. The game had sold more than 18 million copies before it was launched on PC, and as of the most recent financial earnings reports disclosed by Sony, it appears that the game has sold more than 23 million copies.
This is a remarkably encouraging development for Sony, and it only serves to reinforce their resolve to port some of their most well-known IPs to PC. The game is currently firmly entrenched in the list of the 30 best-selling video games of all time, right next to industry titans like Mario Kart and Red Dead Redemption 2. These types of figures are only reserved for third-party games like Call of Duty, GTA, and of course Nintendo games, so this is really important for what is effectively a first-party game that is not Nintendo’s.
God of War (2018) is now one of Sony’s top first-party games.
As of June 2022, The Last of Us Part II, one of Sony’s other significant first-party titles, had just reached the 10 million mark. God of War (2018) was one of the best-reviewed games Sony ever produced, and the PC version’s release opened up a whole new audience for it, enabling it to surpass the 20 million sales threshold. It makes sense that Sony would desire to increase the number of ports it offers to the PC market.
The Last of Us Part I, a recreation of the 2013 original game, will be released soon. Although the game’s release date has not yet been specified, it is anticipated to coincide with the premiere of The Last of Us, an HBO series, which is scheduled to air on January 15, 2023.
God of War Ragnarok, one of the year’s biggest blockbusters due out on November 9, 2022, is presently Sony’s main priority. It’s unlikely that SIE will reveal the game’s PC port so soon after its PlayStation launch, but it’s likely that the PC version will be released within the following few years.
Speaking of PlayStation IP coming to PC, Bloodborne’s release on the PC platform has been one of the main topics of talk in the PlayStation-PC community. Since the game’s release, fans have been calling for it to be released on PC because it is regarded as one of the best hits of the PS4 era. Fans are still holding out hope even though neither FromSoftware nor Sony has officially confirmed a Bloodborne PC release. Given how well PlayStation has done on PC, it seems likely that SIE is thinking about porting Bloodborne there.
