Marvel's Spider-Man 2 surpassed 2.5 million sales in its initial 24 hours of release, setting a record as the quickest-selling game from PlayStation Studios in PlayStation's history.
It surpassed revered titles like God of War, The Last of Us, and Horizon Forbidden West, selling quicker than them and even its predecessor, Spider-Man 1, which debuted in 2018.
Spider-Man 2 is the fastest-selling PlayStation Studios game ever

Sony revealed the record-breaking sales figure on Twitter:
