"On the film side we will be adapting the hugely successful action-adventure game, Ghost of Tsushima, with the director of John Wick Chad Stahelski," said Rothman.

He also revealed the game has now sold over eight million units since its July 2020 release on the PlayStation 4. It would later get a PlayStation 5 release in August 2021.

"That game has sold over eight million copies just since its July 2020 debut," said Rothman.

Nice to see a good game selling well, specially a new IP.
GOTY edition & PS5 version should have help.
8 millions is for PS4 version or both combined?

My favourite game in 31 years of gaming! Well deserved! From a neutral perspective I know that the game isn't doing anything groundbreaking or innovative but it was always my childhood dream to play a great Samurai action or action-adventure game - Ghost of Tsushima delivered 100% on that. I platinized it.

I didn't play Sekiro and Nioh 1 -2 (SoulsBorne frustration doesn't come into my house), the two Samurai Yakuza-Spin-offs (only released in Japan and the Yakuza formula is too tedious for me) and Way of the Samurai 1-4 (too low-budget and it shows in frustrating gameplay). How can I judge if I haven't even played them? Well, with so many years of gaming experience I DO KNOW how to judge if a game is something for me or not by reading/watching trusted reviewers and by watching videos of the games.

The Onimusha Series is great (Capcom when do you continue the series?) but I didn't played them either as I don't like the "Samurai-contra-Demon" topic (seen/read it 100 times in Manga/Anime/Movies/Novels). I absolutely LOVE Samurai Shodown (back then on the SNES and even Game Boy as a NEO GEO was too expensive) and I will look forward to finally buy and play the PS4 version of the Remake but they are fighting games and therefore don't fall into my defined category.

I missed out on Bushido Blade 1-2 (and the Spin-off Kengo: Master of Bushido) on the PS2 because I think they are great games (but also fighting games).

This game is a new IP and I believe it did better than Infamous series, SuckerPunch really gotten better in Sales and Metacritic with an 89 on PS5 , 8 million in 1 year and a half , SuckerPunch is going to the moon.

Here’s to hoping it’s the next title to come to PC! I can’t wait to play God of War next week and Uncharted in probably a few months.
