Critically acclaimed PlayStation and Santa Monica Studio’s God of War (2018) has sold over 23 million copies to date, according to Sony’s latest earnings report.

The new sales figure is up from 19.5 million copies sold in October 2021, with the increase likely due in part to the release of the PC version of God of War earlier this year, which saw Sony’s biggest launch on the platform to date.

The impending release of God of War: Ragnarok could be another reason for the surge in sales, and Sony expects the sequel to perform just as well as its predecessor.

“The previous God of War game released in 2018 was one of the biggest titles ever released exclusively for PlayStation, selling 23 million cumulative units to date,” reads the earnings report. “We also expect similar performance from this new title.”

The sequel will see the continuation of the emotionally charged journey of self-discovery of Kratos and his son Atreus as they venture into the lore-steeped realms of Norse mythology while battling gods and monsters.
