Even though some story details regarding The Last of Us 2 (TLOU2) were leaked back in April, it seems that these weren’t enough to majorly affect the game’s pre-order count. In an interview with CNET, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan said that The Last of Us 2 is still poised to be a sales success. In fact, TLOU2’s pre-order tally in Europe is higher than the pre-order count for Marvel’s Spider-Man.
While Ryan did not mention any specific pre-order numbers, the fact that it has more pre-orders than Spider-Man in Europe is an impressive feat. After all, Marvel’s Spider-Man is one of the best-selling games of 2018. Plus, this statement shows that there is still a big interest in The Last of Us Part 2.
Of course it remains to be seen how well the game will perform in other regions and outside of pre-orders. We’ll just have to wait and see until the game releases on June 19.
