The Last of Us Part II

In a PlayStation.Blog post, senior VP of PlayStation worldwide marketing Eric Lempel said, "Naughty Dog has created an experience that truly transcends the category with The Last of Us Part II. They have honed their craft for years and have once again set a new bar for what is possible through interactive entertainment. All of this came together to deliver a generation-defining experience and the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive."

Earlier this week, figures for physical sales in the UK showed that The Last of Us Part II had broken records, making the game's launch the biggest for Sony this generation. Naughty Dog's sequel beat out Uncharted 4: A Thief's end by 1% making it the fastest-selling release for the PS4 based on physical sales in the UK.

In the same blog post, Naughty Dog's VP and director of The Last of Us Part II said that the team was "grateful to the millions of fans around the world that have played The Last of Us Part II and shared their experiences with us over the last week". Druckmann added, "We set out to tell a new kind of story, one that deals with difficult themes and would challenge you in unexpected ways. Hearing how the experience has resonated with so many of you and witnessing the type of thoughtful discussions it has sparked has been so incredible."

Finally, Druckmann thanks the team that created the game saying it wouldn't have been possible without "the efforts of the hundreds of talented and passionate developers here at Naughty Dog".
