NPD Group presented a report on the American video game market for December and the entire past year. Annual turnover rose 27% to $56. 9 billion.
The best-selling console of the year was the Nintendo Switch — both by number of copies and revenue. The second place was divided between the PS5 and PS4: one higher revenue, and the other sold more copies.
The best-selling game of the year was Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Right behind her comes Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
The top three are shutting down Animal Crossing: New Horizons — perhaps it would stand higher if Nintendo shared digital sales. In fifth and sixth places were Assassins Creed Valhalla and The Last of Us: Part II.
The latter in just 7 months was Sonys third most successful game in the United States by revenue: the first and second place “Spider-Man” and God of War (2018). Cyberpunk 2077 debuted on the December chart at number two, but the data is incomplete — CD Projekt also does not share digital sales with NPD Group, so only physical copies.
In the overall chart for the 2020th, the game was at number 19.
