The Last of Us: Part II launched in June, but revealed as part of the July NPD report, life-to-date dollar sales of the sequel are already the third-highest in Sony history. This means that only Marvel’s Spider-Man and God of War have sold more in the United States so far, and both have been available significantly longer.
Despite topping the charts in the June NPD report, Ellie’s sophomore outing managed to finish fourth in the sales period spanning July 2020. It’s currently the third best-selling game of the year in the United States, behind only Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. So much for those boycotts, eh?
