Though it had the second biggest Steam launch for a PlayStation Studios release, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC scored big with its UK release. According to GSD (via GamesIndustry), the port is the fastest-selling PC launch in the region yet. Opening week sales are 26 percent higher than that of God of War.
On top of that, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is the fourth biggest PC release of 2022 in the UK. Elden Ring, Total War: Warhammer 3 and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga are the top three. Overall, this is good news for Sony, which has steadily ramped up its PC releases of first-party titles.
In May, it revealed that Horizon Zero Dawn sold nearly 2.4 million units on Steam while God of War sold 971,000 units. It’s projecting $300 million in revenue from its PC releases in this fiscal year, ending on March 31st, 2023. With The Last of Us Part 1 and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection still to come for PC, it may end up hitting that target. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
