Forums - Sales Discussion - God of War (PS4) nearing 20M sold, franchise cross 50M.

Tagged games:

The word of mouth for GOW is so strong that I wouldn't be surprised. For me its the game of the generation (on Playstation at least), would be nice for its sales to reflect that.

Wasnt he doing a side project? something sci-fy or such?

Yeah, he's rumored to be developing a new IP with a 2nd team at SIE Santa Monica.

ResetEra has collected the rumors:
1. Cory Barlog is working on a new IP (link)
2. Santa Monica is building a second team (link)
3. Duncan Jones hinting at Barlogs new project (link)
4. Cory Barlog is teasing a sci-fi project (link)
5. Eric Williams is the Director of the God of War sequel (link)

Thanks for the info

Very well deserved and I believe without any bundles.



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

If God of War is 20m or close to then almost certain Uncharted 4 and Spider-Man also are 20m+ sellers.

Pretty crazy to go from having a single 10m seller on previous console to possibly three 20m sellers on this one.



Im glad. I personally consider GOW (2018) the best in the franchise. Hope Sony with the PS5 can bring new franchises to this height of success.

Based on hiring and relocation, there's a good chance Sony Santa Monica has two teams. 



Deserved.... I absolutely loved this game. Even with some small issues, it's still probably my GOTG, and few come even close to it.

Considering they helped a lot of Indies, I guess they always had a second team but perhaps small, that now have been put to full size and perhaps was dev GoW sequel even while the other game was still in development? Would explain the short time between releases.

Last time we heard from Uncharted 4 was nearly 2 years ago (18-19 months ago).
By then it was at 16,2million.  No idea how well its sold, in that time, but..... its not unthinkable it could go over 20m either.

Spiderman was at 13,2m 14 months ago.  With spiderman getting a enhanced mode for PS5, I'm pretty sure that is going over 20m.

And should we count Spider-Man Miles Morales Ultimate Edition giving original SM Remaster, should be count it as a bundled sale?
