March 14, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Fresh off getting quite a few wins at the BAFTA awards, Naughty Dog has announced that The Last of Us has crossed 6 million copies sold worldwide, which is likely the combined number of retail and digital sales. If you’ll recall, The Last of Us moved 3.4 million copies in under 3 weeks after launch, so this means it sold 2.6 million copies between July 4th, 2013 and March 2014.

As for The Last of Us: Left Behind, the single player DLC for The Last of Us, Naughty Dog points out that it’s the highest rated PS3 DLC ever, sitting at 89 on Metacritic.
