After achieving the milestone of selling more than 5 million copies in 11 days, Spider-Man 2 has unlocked an even better feat. Insomniac Games have now sold more than 6.1 Million copies of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 as of 11th December 2023, as revealed via the massive data breach caused by a ransomware group (via Resetera).
The leak revealed sales numbers of many PlayStation games (PS4 and PS5), and another document shows that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, released on October 20, 2023, reached 5 million sell-through units as of 30th October. This means that the game added more than a million unit sales at an astonishing speed, confirming the popularity of the hero and Spider-Man games as a whole.
This previous achievement was confirmed and announced by the official Twitter page of @insomniacgames on November 9, 2023:
“Woo! We’re incredibly honored to announce Marvel’s #SpiderMan2PS5 has sold over 5 MILLION COPIES! Thank you to our incredible community for supporting us and helping us reach this milestone! #BeGreaterTogether”
It was the best-selling game of October in the US and as of November 15, it was the 4th best-selling game of 2023. The best-selling game this year was Hogwarts Legacy, after which Call of Duty MW3 takes a spot, and then comes the Nintendo Switch exclusive The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is also the fastest-selling PlayStation Studios title in the 24 hours following its release, taking out God of War Ragnarok from the top spot. GOW: Ragnarok sold 5.1 million copies in its first week and Marvel’s Spider-Man sold 3.3 million copies in its first 3 days.
Here’s a statement from Insomniac, from when they reached this record-breaking milestone:
“Insomniac Games holds itself to incredibly high standards when it comes to delivering engaging and innovative gameplay experiences,” said Eric Lempel, SVP, Global Marketing, Sales, and Business Operations, Sony Interactive Entertainment.
“Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is Insomniac Games’ third installment in the franchise for PlayStation. Built from the ground up to take advantage of the unique features of PlayStation 5, the goal was to massively build off the action, storylines, and features from the first two games. With an epic storyline, two playable Super Heroes, a visually-stunning Marvel’s New York, and so much more, this is a game you can get lost in for hours. On behalf of Sony Interactive Entertainment, I want to say thank you to the fans – we truly hope you are enjoying your time playing as Peter and Miles in this amazing adventure.”
