For me it will sell 20M, and as bonus I liked second more but first had a better story.

Around 12 million on PS4 and I will stop here because I dont know if the ps5 version will have improvements, will be a remaster or if there will be any incentive to play it on ps5 except for 4k and 60fps. If it is released on PS5 as a new remastered and much better version that would justify people buying it again then I would go for 15-16 million.
The first one had a lot of sales from people buying it again to play at 60fps because the first game wasnt good at all on PS3 from a performance point of view.



12-14 million for PS4 SKU

The original sold 6.27m on PS3 alone, according to VGC. And the Remastered version on PS4 sold 6.27m.
Not sure how much better this one will do, but I'll say 9-11 million.

TLOU on PS3 sold over 7m and combined with TLOU:R total sales are over 20m.

Got a source for that second figure? If so I'll update the sales on the game page - https://www.vgchartz.com/game/80977/the-last-of-us-remastered/?region=All

Last update we could find when adding the series' sales was 8.15 million for the PS3 version and 11.78 million for the PS4 remastered version.

Edit - I think you've just misremembered what the 20 million announcement was for. It was for both versions combined, not the PS4 on its own.

12-14m seems reasonable enough for me.

While I enjoyed TLOU2, I felt TLOU1 was better.



12-14m

Yes, combined with TLOU:R sales are 20m.



About 10 million. Sales are mostly front-loaded, but will continue to be strong.
