Modern Warfare II overtakes Elden Ring as the best seller of 2022, according to NPD

NPD Group has released some of its North American sales data for December (full numbers should arrive tomorrow, we’ll update this story when they do) and now we know our overall winners for the year. From the acclaimed Elden Ring, it topped the sales charts for most of 2022, leading some to speculate/hope that it could end up as the year’s bestseller, ending up with longtime seemingly unbeatable hero Call of Duty. Well, sorry Souls fans, that wasn’t the case, because the expected Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II powerhouse was just too much. While the latest CoD has only been available for the last two months of the year, it’s officially the best-selling game of 2022.

Looking at December’s top 10, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II took the top spot, while Pokemon Scarlet, Violet, and God of War Ragnarok continued to do well in second and third place, respectively. Elden Ring also pushed another holiday, moving back into seventh place after dropping out of the top ten the previous month. As for new games, Need for Speed ​​Unbound debuted in eighth place and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII – Reunion came in tenth.

Here are the top 10 games of November according to NPD (again, this will be updated to the usual top 20 later):
