Followed by NBA 2K20 and Madden NFL 20.
The NPD Group has released plenty of new data for video game software and hardware sales in the US for the past month, year, and decade, and some interesting but not-too-surprising details have emerged. Here’s another one- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was the best-selling game in the US (in terms of dollar sales) throughout all of 2019 (via GamesBeat). It also topped the software charts for the month of December.
In fact, much of the list for the year of 2019 is quite predictable. NBA 2K20 and Madden NFL 20 are right behind Call of Duty, while Borderlands 3 and Mortal Kombat 11 are at No. 4 and No. 5. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order seems to have performed much better than EA would expect of a single player title, and is in at No. 6. It is followed by Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the seventh spot.
Some other major 2019 releases like Kingdom Hearts 3, The Division 2, Pokemon Sword, Resident Evil 2, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and Days Gone also chart in the top 10. Meanwhile, last year’s Red Dead Redemption 2 is at No. 12, while perennial sellers Grand Theft Auto 5 and Mario Kart 8 are also in the top 10.

Meanwhile, seven out of ten spots in the best-selling games of the decade list were also occupied by Call of Duty, while the PS4 was the best-selling platform of the decade.
