The October 2018 NPD was just released and to no shock whatsoever, Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2 were the best selling games of the month. While Red Dead had the largest entertainment opening weekend ever, it released too late in the month to take the top spot from Call of Duty. Both games took over the top two best-selling games of the year, knocking Far Cry 5 to third.
Other notables in the list include Super Mario Party moving from 9th in September to 5th in October, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey maintaining its monthly spot at 3rd. Insomniac’s Spider-Man game also remained in the top 10 for sales on the month and is the 4th highest selling game of 2018. Very impressive for an exclusive title.
The top 10 selling video games of October 2018 are as follow:
10. WWE 2K19
9. Madden NFL 19
8. Marvel’s Spider-Man
7. FIFA 19
6. Soul Caliber 6
5. Super Mario Party
4. NBA 2K19
