God of War Ragnarök shatters sales records

According to PlayStation, the game is the quickest selling first-party launch game in PlayStation history.

This most likely means sales across PlayStation 4 and 5 including digital sales.

Compared to it’s predecessor, God of War, which sold just over 23 million copies on PlayStation 4 and PC.

Sony’s launch this year was probably it’s biggest to date, which may have tilted sales in its favour.

The game does come with some disappointing news as the game’s director has stated the game will not have a feature documentary like the previous instalment.

Instead of a documentary, gamers can look forward to a weekly series delving into the production process of the game.

God of War raising Kratos documented the five year process in creating the PlayStation 4 game.

From Santa Monica Studio comes the sequel to the critically acclaimed God of War released in 2018. The latest installment continues the journey of Kratos and his son Atreus as the pair face off against Norse gods, in a mythic journey for answers and allies.
