We've been tracking the commercial success of Marvel's Spider-Man since its September launch, and as expected, it's been a sales juggernaut. In addition to becoming one of PS4's most beloved exclusives, the game has been performing extremely well at retail, whether that's via brick and mortar shops or the PlayStation Store. It toppled God of War as the fastest selling PlayStation exclusive, and now, Sony's given us a clearer indication of sales to date.
In a new report from the company, as of 25th November 2018, Marvel's Spider-Man has sold through over 9 million copies worldwide, including physical and digital. This is an amazing result for any game, let alone an exclusive title. It still has some way to go to beat The Last of Us as Sony's best selling title, which has sold over 17 million copies if you put the PS3 and PS4 versions together. Still, selling over 9 million in just three months puts it firmly on the right track, and we wouldn't be surprised to see Spidey crowned the biggest selling PlayStation exclusive ever in the future.
It paints a pretty picture for the inevitable sequel on PS5. With a well received new story to follow, an extremely good gameplay structure to build on, and almost guaranteed sales success, Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is definitely something to look forward to.
