Although, they had the data regarding units sold to their hands back in April, the studio probably waited for the fifth anniversary of the game’s debut to come and then make it public. The game was released on June 14, 2013 for PS3 and 13 months after it came out, Sony has already sold 7 million copies of it. A PS4 version, The Last of Us Remastered is released on July 2014, which saw 1 million units sold in just a month and mounted a total of 8 million copies of the game.

When the game was ported to PlayStation 4, it saw another surge on stores for the game. It became so popular that Sony even announced a new PlayStation 4 bundle that offered The Last of Us Remastered with it back in 2015. Game director Neil Druckmann surely did an awesome job creating a compelling story of Joel and Ellie's unforgettable journey in such a dark and gritty world.
