PlayStation announced today that a Ghost of Tsushima film is in the works by Sony Pictures and John Wick director Chad Stahelski! Additionally, PlayStation announced today that Ghost of Tsushima surpassed 6.5 million copies sold worldwide. Here’s the full announcement:
We are happy to partner with Sony Pictures to make this happen. And Jin is in very good hands with the film’s director. Chad Stahelski created something special with John Wick. His vision for what could be, backed up by years of experience, combined to create some of the finest action scenes ever created. If anyone could bring to life the razor-sharp tension of Jin’s katana combat, it’s Chad Stahelski.
Also, I’m happy to say we’ve sold more than 6.5 million copies of Ghost of Tsushima now, and that roughly half of those people have made it all the way through the game. Can you believe that? That’s around 3.25 million times the digital Mongols have been kicked out of digital Tsushima.
As a newly appointed ambassador for the real Island of Tsushima, I’d like to formally say- visit when it’s safe to, if you get a chance. The island is beautiful, the people are warm, and the history is all around you. If you’re very, very lucky you’ll spot a Tsushima Cat. Then later, when the Ghost of Tsushima movie comes out, you can tell your friends about how you’ve been to the beach where the Mongols landed.
I know I speak for everyone at Sucker Punch by sending out a massive THANK YOU to Ghost fans. Your support for the game is what makes opportunities like a movie come true. It’s been a sincere pleasure checking out your photo-mode images posted online and fighting alongside you in Legends. We’re so happy to be on this ride with you.
