Today, during Sony’s traditional press conference from CES 2022 in Las Vegas, Sony Pictures chief executive officer Tom Rothman provided an update for the sales of Ghost of Tsushima.
Rothman defined the game by Sucker Punch “hugely successful” and revealed that it has sold over 8 million copies.
The previous update was at 6.5 million units as of March 2021, while we also heard that it’s the fastest-selling first-party original PS4 game of all time.
This is certainly not a small achievement for a brand new IP.
The original Ghost of Tsushima was released for PS4 in July 2020, with a Director’s Cut for both PS4 and PS5 that followed in August 2021.

The game has also received widespread appreciation in Japan, so much that its developers have been named official ambassadors of the island of Tsushima.
During the same conference, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced the official name of the PlayStation VR2, its Sense controllers, on top of its dedicated game Horizon Call of the Mountain. It also revealed a new scene of the upcoming Uncharted movie.
