Slowly but surely, Ghost of Tsushima enters the history of the PlayStation: the title of the Sucker Punch studio continues to sell, exactly 2 years after its release in July 2020… And is still approaching the bar of 10 million copies sold.

The American studio took stock of the game’s figures on its official Twitter account, looking back on the various performances of the players during their adventures, with many statistics testifying to its tireless success on PS4 and PS5.

Ghost of Tsushima is still going strong

It is therefore precisely at 9.73 million copies that Ghost of Tsushima sold out, a great performance that puts the game in a good position in the top 10 sales of the PlayStation 4 console. Ghost of Tsushima is hot on the heels of blockbusters like Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us Remastered and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, all of which have surpassed the 10 million copies mark. Nevertheless, the adventure on Japanese soil is still far, very far from the three biggest sales of the console, namely Uncharted 4, Minecraft and God of War, the latter having sold 19.5 million copies.

On the occasion of the two years of the release of the game, Sucker Punch has also detailed the various cumulative statistics of the players. The amateur samurai have therefore spent 6437.4 years on horseback traversing the lands of the island of Tsushima, a good little bit of time in short. More than 998 million clashes also took place, for 540.8 million saber against saber duels. Finally, to finish on a more pacifist note: 78 million shots were taken via the game’s photo mode, while 75.18 million foxes were treated to petting by ronins around the world.

Still in the news surrounding Ghost of Tsushima, we are still waiting for the first images of its adaptation to the big screen by Chad Stahelsk, director of the John Wick trilogy. According to the latest news, the writing of the script for the film is progressing, carried out in tandem with the game’s development teams… Patience required, therefore.

Acclaimed by critics and the public, the title has already been entitled to a second version and is now preparing its adaptation to the cinema, with undoubtedly a second game which is also in development. It is therefore a full box for the studio, which boasts today of almost exceeding a highly symbolic level.

Just a little more effort

To celebrate the game’s second anniversary, Sucker Punch tweeted with several statistics around the title, which shows how well it has been played.

Other slightly less significant numbers to remember include 78 million photos taken in-game, while players spent more than 6437.4 years combined on horseback.

In short, enough to announce good news for Ghost of Tsushima 2, which is certainly in active development within the studio.
