The Last of Us Part II has sold through more than four million copies as of June 21—three days after its June 19 worldwide release—becoming the fastest-selling PlayStation 4-exclusive title ever, publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and development Naughty Dog announced.
Here is a message from The Last of Us Part II director and Naughty Dog vice president Neil Druckmann on the milestone:
We are so immensely grateful to the millions of fans around the world that have played The Last of Us Part II and shared their experiences with us over the last week.

Hearing how the experience has resonated with so many of you and witnessing the type of thoughtful discussions it has sparked has been so incredible. We’ve also been so inspired by your creativity—whether it’s your gorgeous Photo Mode shots, jaw-dropping gameplay GIFs, or the songs you’ve recorded using Ellie’s guitar.
The Last of Us Part II was made possible thanks to the efforts of the hundreds of talented and passionate developers here at Naughty Dog. We can imagine no greater honor than seeing that same passion mirrored by the people playing it. Thank you for helping us reach this amazing milestone.
