NPD: Ghost of Tsushima Was July’s Best-Seller in the United States, The Last of Us II Continues to Set Records

The NPD Group has released its sales report for the month of July 2020, revealing that Sucker Punch Production’s Ghost of Tsushima was the best-selling title in the United States.

Ghost of Tsushima launched on July 17th and instantly became the fifth best-selling game of 2020 in the U.S. to date. It is also now the fastest-selling Sucker Punch title, and has achieved the fourth highest launch month dollar sales in U.S. history for a Sony-published game.

For Sony, Ghost of Tsushima trails behind The Last of Us Part II in the U.S. The Naughty Dog title is the third best-selling game of 2020 to date, and is already the sixth best-selling game for the 12-month period ended July 2020 despite releasing in June. The Last of Us II‘s lifetime dollar sales are now the third highest for a Sony-published game in U.S. history, behind only Marvel’s Spider-Man and God of War.
