It's not easy. These are numbers few developers can touch. MK8 and TLOU are MUCH more the exception than the rule.

Actually Spiderman is catching up at an exponential rate, with God of War just behind that. TLOU2 should surpass all of them easy though. TLOU1 is still the most impressive seeing as it's a brand new IP, while the rest are either iconic brands or atleast have an over decade long history in case of God of War.

Not to mention it’s a new IP, Part 2 should be the biggest exclusive of all time barring something like Wii Sports.

for TLOU1 the 20 mil includes PS3 and PS4. when TLOU2 releases it will sell well on PS4 but since the PS5 is backwards compaitable with PS4 games, surely they can't make that many more sales if they re-release on PS5.
Imagine the PS4 was backwards compatible with PS3 games how different GTA5 sales would be on PS4 (i think it has sold close to 20 mil on PS4)

TLoU2 should hit 20M too.
Sony biggest studios have kicked in a new gear since TLoU.
What was once Gran Turismo exclusive is now becoming the norm for Sony biggest exclusives.

It goes without say that TLoU2 will easily do better, especially with a potential re-release on PS5
