User Twitter under the pseudonym Timur222 drew attention to information about the success of God of War (2018) and Horizon Zero Dawn on the LinkedIn profile of the former PlayStation Group Marketing Manager TJ Consunji.
Consunji did not provide new data on the number of sold copies of the mentioned games, but shared information on the revenue and distribution between the “digital” and retail for the first year.
So, revenue from sales of God of War before Consunji left PlayStation reached $ 500 million. The former manager also gives information about Horizon Zero Dawn: the creation of Guerrilla Games has a slightly more modest figure – $ 400 million.
The most popular God of War predictably turned out to be retail – it accounted for 60% of the 10 million copies sold by May 2019. An even more significant share (65% of almost 8 million copies) belongs to Horizon Zero Dawn.
Earlier, the New York Times, citing data from Sony Interactive Entertainment, reported that sales of the God of War series games exceeded 51 million copies. How many of them fall specifically on God of War (2018) is not specified.
Both God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn have already earned themselves a sequel. Both sequels are announced for 2021: the new God of War will be released only on PS5, and Horizon Forbidden West – on PS4 and PS5.
However, the so far unnamed God of War can still look at the console of the past generation: the head of Sony Interactive Entertainment Jim Ryan (Jim Ryan) recently declined to comment on the platform belonging to the game.
