The company M.Video-Eldorado conducted an analysis of the game market and reported that the recently released game from Naughty Dog set all records in the Russian market in retail stores. All data speaks only about how physical copies of games were sold in stores and may vary with global results worldwide. However, in the UK, for example, the figures are approximately the same. In the data below, the circulation for the period from June 19-22 was calculated.
The Last of Us Part II became more successful than GTA V, with a double distance ahead of the previous leader, Death Stranding. Compared with the first part of The Last of Us, the released game set a sevenfold record.
