The top selling games in the US for November 2018 have been revealed, and you might be shocked to learn which game took the number one spot.
I’m just kidding. It was Red Dead Redemption 2, obviously. Exact sales number are never disclosed in the NPD report, but Rockstar’s digital Western has beaten Black Ops 4, which was the top selling game of October.
While Arthur, Dutch, and the gang might have won November, NPD still has Black Ops 4 as the best selling game of the year so far. Remember, these numbers are US only, and Black Ops 4 had a two week head start on RDR2, so don’t get mad at me. Please don’t get mad at me.
The report also shows that RDR2 has already exceeded Red Dead Redemption’s sales by nearly 40 percent, with IGN pointing out that this means the game has likely already surpassed 20 million units.
The top five is rounded out by Battlefield V, Fallout 76, and Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu. Let’s Go Eevee is at number 6, as the two are counted as different games.
Here’s the top 10 best selling games for November 2018:
- Red Dead Redemption 2
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
- Battlefield V
- Fallout 76
- Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!
- Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
- NBA 2K19
- Madden NFL 19
- Spyro: The Reignited Trilogy
- FIFA 19
In other Red Dead Redemption 2 news, a YouTuber has uploaded what they claim is footage of the game running on PC.
Finally releasing the game on PC certainly wouldn’t sales, so it seems like a matter of time before Rockstar confirms whether or not all these leaks and rumours are true.
