The OD has now released rankings related to video game sales in the US for November. Several major titles released last month, including Fallout 76 which appeared on the list of best-selling games in November 2018.
To start, the November crown was not actually Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 but Red Dead Redemption 2 instead. RDR2 and Black Ops 4 were first and second, followed by another multiplayer shooter in Battlefield V . Fourth is a surprise in Fallout 76 with post-apocalyptic RPG selling big numbers despite a rough critical reception. Rounding off the top five games for November is Pokemon Let's go Pikachu (with Eevee in sixth).
As strong as Fallout 76 appears first, the game has been confirmed to have had fewer sales than previous games from the franchise, Fallout 4 and New Vegas . Nevertheless, the online multiplayer game turns out Fallout 3 which shows that it may be more popular than the current online discourse may imply.
The rest of the OD's full list of best-selling games in November is not noticeable, as the total top 20 consists almost entirely of previous releases. Nevertheless, it is a big reminder of which games had a particularly successful 2018.
A noticeable absence in the list above is Far Cry 5 for even with the fourth best-selling so far in 2018, it was not possible to beat the top 20 for November. Perhaps Ubisoft prioritized Assassin's Creed Odyssey or maybe FC5 its early launch opened the first person shooter to an audience who would otherwise have struggled to find in the end of 2018.
Remember that this list is exclusive of sales in the US and probably is not representative of other regions. Beyond this, however, it would be interesting to see which numbers are reported for December and if Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is able to take the top sales point in all regions next month.
Fallout 76 is now available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
