The November 2018 NPD report is in, and Red Dead Redemption 2 has come out on top.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was the month’s second best-selling game in the United States, swapping places with Red Dead Redemption 2 from last month. It also remains the best-selling game of the year, meaning its overall sales remain higher than Red Dead Redemption 2’s. Exact sales numbers aren’t disclosed in the NPD report, so how big the gap is remains unknown. Black Ops 4 did, however, release two weeks ahead of its closest competition.
The report did reveal that Red Dead Redemption 2 has already exceeded its predecessor’s sales by nearly 40 percent. We know the original sold over 14 million copies by 2015, meaning its sequel has likely surpassed 20 million units.
