Successful licensing on PlayStation consoles

Released in 2013 on Sony’s PlayStation 3 console, the first game from the Naughty Dog license was a resounding critical and commercial success and was even entitled to a “remake” version on the PlayStation 5. The second, released in 2020 on the Playstation 4, was also a commercial success although its violence was decried at the time of its release.

The series, whose first season returns to the events of the first game, has been broadcast since January 15 in the United States on the HBO Max platform. She notably offered the second best start for an HBO series in more than fifteen years. In France, it is available on Amazon’s Prime Video platform.
