Kojima Productions today announced Death Stranding has sold over 5 million copies on the PlayStation Store, Steam, and on store shelves. The PC version of the game also made 505 Games $27 million in 2020.

The Death Stranding numbers are impressive, but the game didn't sell as fast as other key PlayStation games. Death Stranding took 499 days (November 8 release to March 2021) to hit 5 million sales. Right now Uncharted 4 leads the pack with 8.7 million copies sold in its first 226 days.

Here's a quick comparison of how long certain first-party games took to achieve multi-million sales. Also remember that Sony's first-party game sales charts are woefully outdated and these figures don't represent current numbers.

  • Uncharted 4 - 226 days to hit 8.7 million sales
  • Ghost of Tsushima - 249 days to hit 6.5 million sales
  • Marvel's Spider-Man - 325 days to hit 13.2 million sales
  • Death Stranding - 499 days to hit 5 million sales
  • Horizon Zero Dawn - 672 days to hit 10 million sales
