God of War went on sale for PC on January 14th, and since then, this traditionally Playstation exclusive sensation has reportedly hit a major milestone. The past two weeks have seen GOW become Sony’s biggest Steam launch, beating Horizon Zero Dawn hands-down.

It’s worthy to note that merely a day after the launch, 75000 people were playing God of War on Steam at the same time. God of War is also, at present, the best-selling game on Steam with indications that the game has even surpassed 1 million copies on PC.

This means that the actual number of sales is likely much higher than 1 million
