Based on those sales figures, it’s just a matter of time until God of War becomes the best-selling entry in the franchise to date. That title is currently held by God of War 3 which has sold an estimated 4.81 million units to date. As for the best-selling PS4 exclusive so far, it’s believed that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End currently occupies that throne by virtue of selling an estimated 8.7 million units. That total is well-within God of War‘s reach.

It’s impossible to not cheer for God of War‘s considerable achievements. It’s a great game that has completely revitalized the franchise and was clearly a passion project for everyone involved in its development. Now, we’ll just wait and see how high the game can climb up the all-time sales charts.
