PlayStation announced today on Twitter that its recent release God of War Ragnarok is the best-selling first-party game. At the time of this writing, it sold 5.1 million copies in its first week of launch. It also set a sales record for the God of War series.

The game launches on November 9 for both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. One of the most understandable reasons why Ragnarok is selling so well is because it’s not exclusive to PlayStation 5. Despite sales of that console. increased but it is still not as widely distributed as its predecessor, due to supply chain problems for many years. Sony has yet to release specifics on console sales.

The previous title holder was The Last of Us Part II. It sold four million copies by its release weekend and remains the best-selling PS4 exclusive title. Sony’s previous God of War title in 2018 itself held the title briefly, selling 3.1 million copies in its first three days, before being beaten by Spider-Man with 3.3 million copies.

Ragnarok also won several awards at Upcoming Game Awards program, including Game of the Year. The film’s two main actors, Christopher Judge and Sunny Suljic, were both nominated for best performance.
