Spirit of Tsushima was a complete success for both Sucker Punch and Sony. According to PlayStation, the game is now the fastest-selling new IP for PlayStation 4. With Spirit of Tsushima With 2.4 million copies in the first three days of international release, the game is a clear commercial and critical success for Sony. Digital Trends gave the game 4.5 stars and praised it for its contemplative narrative, presentation and impressive open world, but was crucial for the characters’ uncomfortable facial animations.
Spirit of Tsushima is probably one of the last Swan songs on PlayStation 4, along with The Last of Us Part II, It was also a huge success and sold 4 million copies in the first three days of publication. Cross-platform titles like Cyberpunk 2077 and Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s time will be released on the console before or just like the PlayStation 5 starts, but Spirit of Tsushima marks the last major new IP to be released during the PlayStation 4 lifecycle.
With a number of successful exclusive products, Sony may be able to continue on the PlayStation 5 with releases like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clink: Tear apart, and horizon Forbidden West in development. The PS5 currently has no set start date, but will arrive in the 2020 holiday season.
