On its fifth anniversary, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been played by over 37 million people. It’s important to note that these are not sales numbers: Naughty Dog is vague about how the figure is calculated, but the number will almost certainly include PS Plus downloads, pre-owned copies, and rentals. Nevertheless, it’s clearly an impressive number.
Back in 2019, the game had sold 16 million units, so we’d expect its sales numbers to be near or over 20 million units by now. It’s also certain to get a boost when the Uncharted movie releases next February – unless Sony has something new in store. Personally, we’d really appreciate a PS5 patch, as this title still looks incredible, but deserves to run at 60 frames-per-second.
We absolutely adored the exclusive when it first released in 2016, awarding it a 10/10 in a glowing review: “A fitting end for one of PlayStation's most famous franchises, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End sits alongside The Last of Us at the apex of cinematic action experiences. Naughty Dog's ability to tell engaging tales is unmatched, with Nate's final chapter expertly balancing bombast against genuinely relatable themes.”
