Death Stranding posted record sales among Sony franchises. Michael Mumbaer, former lead visual art director at PlayStation WorldWide Studios, announced this in his resume on Linkedin. He has worked on numerous games and has put Death Stranding on a par with Uncharted, The Last of Us, God of War, and Marvel’s Spider-Man in sales.
Unfortunately, Michael did not name the exact sales. Kojima himself said that the sales of the game paid for its production, and it turned out to be profitable. There was no confirmation of these statements.
By the summer of 2018, The Last of Us had sold over 17 million copies. Uncharted has a different situation: more than 40 million for the entire franchise and more than 15 for the fourth part of the series. Perhaps we are talking just about these sales figures of Death Stranding , but it is not clear whether sales on PC are taken into account, or we are talking only about PS4.
Sony has not commented on this data in any way. The company did not report Death Stranding sales in its financial statements . The game is currently available on PC, PS4 and PS5.
