After the NPD released its report for November 2014, which indicated that the Xbox One was the top-selling console in the United States and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare the highest selling game, Activision has announced that Advanced Warfare and Bungie’s Destiny are the top two best-selling games in US retail for the year.
Though Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was a foregone conclusion, Destiny has been included because it is the top selling new IP of the year, beating out Watch Dogs. It has also been revealed that Skylanders is the top “kids video game franchise” for the year.
CEO of Activision Publishing Eric Hirshberg stated that, “To date, 2014 has been a series of number ones for Activision Publishing: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the #1 top-selling game of the year, Skylanders is the #1 kids video game franchise of the year, and Destiny is the #1 top-selling new video game franchise of the year.
“We are excited about how fans have responded to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Destiny and Skylanders Trap Team, and have even more great new content in store in 2015.”
