God of War Ragnarok is Now PlayStation’s Fastest Selling First-Party Game Launch

PlayStation today revealed sales figures for God of War Ragnarok a week after launch, and they’re quite impressive.

Today makes one week since God of War Ragnarok launched on PS5 and PS4 worldwide. Prior to launch, the game had already garnered massive critical praise. With that praise in hand, it was only be a matter of time before PlayStation revealed how well the game sold. Now, we finally have that number, and it is good news for Santa Monica Studio.

Taking to Twitter, PlayStation confirmed that God of War Ragnarok not only beat its own franchise record, but also is now the fastest-selling first-party game launch. In total, the game sold through 5.1 million units during its debut week.

It’s an impressive start, though the game still has quite a way to go to out-sell its predecessor. As of November 2022, God of War (2018) has sold over 23 million copies across PS4 and PC. It is unknown when or if Ragnarok would launch on PC.

God of War Ragnarok is available now on PS5 and PS4.
