Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is not only one of the best FPS games today, but it is also the current best-selling game in 2020.
This is information given by gaming analyst Mat Piscatella. He also cited multiple screenshots in the retail tracking service of NPD Group on Twitter, analyzing what games players should buy, including physical and digital versions. In a post, Piscatella shared the list of “Top 20 Best Selling Games of 2020”. He explained, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare became the best-selling game of the year, while Animal Crossing: New Horizons ranked second in the rankings.”
The information shows that this result includes “physical and digital game sales on Nintendo eShop, PlayStation, Steam and Xbox on the online segment” and “dollar ratings”. CoD not only surpassed Animal Crossing exclusively on Switch, but also some of the best PC games of the past years, such as Grand Theft Auto V (currently still in the top 10, ranked 6th after nearly 10 years of launch) and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (10th).
The analyst also said that Infinity Ward’s shooting game, launched in September last year, was the second best-selling game of March 2020, and topped the last 12 months.
