The new “God of War” started more successfully in Great Britain than any offshoot of the series. GamesIndustry drew attention to this today.
“God of War Ragnarök” only needed a single day to have the most successful launch of the series in Great Britain: The action-adventure already has more physical sales than the other “God of War” offshoots in the entire first week. With that, the new Kratos adventure is on track to become the most successful part of the franchise in the UK.
The recently released PS5 bundle contributed to this success. Because 55 percent of console sales this week is the bundle with “God of War Ragnarök”.
For the fourth time at the top
Three God of War games have previously made it to first place. These include the predecessor from 2018 as well as the third and second main offshoot. The first part only made it to fifth place.
The following list shows how successfully each offshoot started. The series around the demigod Kratos now consists of five main parts and three spinoffs. Sony also released a trilogy, collections and a remaster of God of War 3.
God of War (2005) for PS2 – 5th place God of War 2 (2007) for PS2 – 1st place God of War: Chains of Olympus for PSP – 29th place God of War 3 (2010) for PS3 – 1st place God of War Collection (2010) for PS3 – Rank 10 God of War Trilogy (2010) for PS3 – Rank 100 God of War: Ghost of Sparta (2010) for PSP – Rank 73 God of War Collection: Volume II (2011) for PS3 – Rank 35 God of War: Ascension for PS3 – 2nd place God of War 3: Remastered for PS4 – 9th place God of War (2018) for PS4 – 1st place God of War Ragnarök for PS5 & PS4 (2022) – 1st place
