Despite so many big releases last month, Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War soared to the top of software sales charts. The NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella told VentureBeat that not only was the best-selling game for November 2020 but also of 2020 year-to-date. “Call of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War represents 2020’s biggest launch. The title ranks first on both PlayStation and Xbox platforms for the month of November, as well as year to date.
“This is the 13th consecutive year a Call of Duty game has ranked as the best-selling game of its release month.” Assassin’s Creed Valhalla didn’t fall too far behind though. It was the second best-selling game of last month and the seventh best-selling title year-to-date. While it set a new record for first week launch sales as per Ubisoft, Piscatella confirms that it also had the highest launch month sales for the franchise since Assassin’s Creed 3 released in 2012.
In third place was Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales with launch month sales being the highest for superhero games on PlayStation platforms in the history of the US. It also ranked second for PlayStation, only trailing behind Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
