So chalk this one up as a rumor for right now but some new information provided by Sony Santa Monica today may have revealed around how many copies God of War has sold.
Earlier today, Sony Santa Monica put up a blog post with a combat infographic for God of War on PS4. It details a lot of different things such as how many times players have died, the most popular armor for Kratos and Atreus and more. However, the most interesting tidbit comes from how many people have earned the Platinum trophy. It reveals that 493,240 of players have earned the Platinum trophy.
Now, according to the data on PlayStation Network, 5.4% of God of War players have earned the Platinum. If you combine that with the data in the infographic and do the math you come to the conclusion that around 9,134,074 players have played God of War on PS4.
Now that doesn’t directly equal the sales numbers as it could be alternate accounts, used copies, or people lending their copy to a friend. However I don’t think that those factors contribute too much so it’s safe to say that God of War has probably sold around 8-9 million copies or more in a little over four months which would be quite a staggering number.
Of course we’ll have to wait for official word to know the exact numbers but this is a pretty safe bet. Have you bought God of War on PlayStation 4? Let us know in the comments if you earned the Platinum.
