HBO's successful adaptation of the video game has introduced a wider audience to the gripping story of Joel and Ellie's post-apocalyptic journey. Developed by Naughty Dog, the game has won multiple awards and been praised for its story, innovative gameplay, and impressive graphics.
With over 37 million copies sold worldwide as of December 2022, the game's success is also reflected in its sales figures. According to GameIndustry.biz, week over week sales have increased by as much as 322% since the HBO TV series premiere. As a result, sales for The Last of Us Part I and The Last of Us Remastered are moving up the charts in the US, UK, and EU. Based on early reports, it is projected that sales will reach 40 million copies by the end of the final March 12th episode. It will be interesting to see the actual sales figures in the coming weeks and the extent to which the show has impacted the game's already impressive success.
