Killzone: Shadow Fall Ships 2.1 Million Copies

Killzone: Shadow Fall Ships 2.1 Million Copies

Guerrilla Games and Sony must be dancing to a happy song these days, as Killzone: Shadow Fall has proven to be PS4′s bestselling exclusive, with the shooter moving over 2.1 million units since it went on sale alongside PlayStation 4 on November 15th.

“I am thrilled that so many users have been enjoying Killzone: Shadow Fall since the launch of PS4,” said Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS). “This title fully embraces the creativity of the development team at Guerrilla Games*2 based in the Netherlands, and is a perfect representation of what SCE WWS has to offer. SCE will continue to deliver exciting software titles, and is currently developing more than 30 titles including DRIVECLUB™, inFAMOUS Second Son™ and The Order: 1886™, which offer entertainment experiences only possible on PS4.”

The announcement was first made through twitter before Sony sent out the press release. Either ways, it’s good news for Guerrilla Games, but I’m not so sure I’d be celebrating yet. The game didn’t review well at all, and I personally believe that it’s the worst Killzone game ever made. I actually winded up deleting the title from my PS4, that’s how much I hated it, and I’m a huge Killzone fan. So we could have a situation where a lot of people will simply not purchase the next Killzone title when it comes out because of the bad experience. But again, we’ll see how this goes.

Did you buy Killzone: Shadow Fall? If so, what has been your experience? Let me know in the comments below.

    i wonder how many out of the 2million were actually bought separately and did not come as part as a bundle with the console. I actually thought it was ok, didnt think much of the campaign but the MP had me playing it a lot longer than than KZ3 did. Nothing will ever compare to KZ2 tho :) ive noticed that the MP is already dying out fast. saying that i haven’t played it for over a month when i got my gold trophy for 500 accomplishments. Its all about bf4 now for me, like i think a lot other people who originally got KZSF.

    Yeah, many have gone back to BF and COD. Not a good showing by Guerrilla Games at all. At this point, I don’t even want another Killzone if that’s the way it’s going to be.

    Such a shame.

    It said shipped in the title…doesn’t mean sold to customer..

  • ernicegilbert

    True, but it may wind up selling 3 million units plus when it’s all said and done. Such a terrible game in my opinion.
