Just four weeks after its release, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 almost outsold its predecessor – last year’s Call of Duty: Vanguard.
As reported by GamesIndustry, this year’s Call of Duty was the best-selling game in November and nearly surpassed Vanguard’s lifetime sales – a game that had been on sale for one year. The second best selling game in the UK for the past month was God of War Ragnarok for both PS5 and PS4. According to GamesIndustry’s Christopher Dring, sales are up 44% compared to 2018’s God of War.
For UK hardware sales last month, the best-selling console was the Nintendo Switch, jumping 175% in sales month over month. Xbox Series X | followed S closely and the two-console combination ranked second in the UK. Interestingly, the Xbox Series S was the best-selling single console SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) for the month.
Sony’s PS5 had to settle for third place on the list despite hardware sales increasing 71% month over month, spurred by the release of the God of War Ragnarok bundle – the bundle accounted for nearly 38% of PS5 hardware sales during November. Below, we’ve included the top 10 best-selling games of November in the UK. It should be noted that digital downloads of Nintendo titles are not included in the sales figures, so these titles could, in theory, be higher on the list:
|1||Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Activision Blizzard)|
|2||God of War Ragnarok (Sony)|
|3||FIFA 23 (EA)|
|4||Pokemon Violet* (Nintendo)|
|5||Pokemon Scarlett* (Nintendo)|
|6||Football Manager 2023 (Sega)|
|7||Sonic Frontiers (Sega)|
|8||Mario Kart 8: Deluxe (Nintendo)*|
|9||Grand Theft Auto 5 (Rockstar)|
|10||LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (Warner Bros.)|
