Ragnarök Becomes Fastest-Selling God of War Game in UK History

A total of 12 games were launched before series developer Santa Monica Studio finally decided to reboot God of War franchise with its 2018 release on PlayStation 4 and ended up being no. 5 at generating sales revenue and console units.

On its day of worldwide launch, God of War: Ragnarök had a massive start on PlayStation 4 and 5 this week. Within a day of its recent release, Ragnarök has become fastest-selling God of War game among entire series in UK history so far.

According to a report on GamesIndustry.biz, God of War: Ragnarök saw biggest launch of series history in U.K. Ragnarök day-one physical sales are greater than any other franchise titles and it reached at no. 1 as first cross-gen series entry.

Market data analyst GfK reveals that launch-day boxed sales for Ragnarök was greater than full release week sale of every previous title. Its predecessor and 2018 reboot on PlayStation 4 was fastest-selling entry prior to Ragnarök release.

A day after launch, Ragnarök becomes a best-seller in terms of opening week sales and lifetime shipped copies for known franchise. GfK also claims that 55% of PlayStation 5 console sales this week were part of Ragnarök hardware bundle.

God of War: Ragnarök is currently on its way to be fourth game in series to top UK boxed charts very soon. Sony released first God of War game in 2005 for PlayStation 2 and it reached at no. 5 in UK, only to get ousted by its sequel in 2007.
