Here are the best selling video games of May 2020

I assumed video game sales would die down in May once certain businesses started reopening, but I guess I was wrong!

According to VentureBeat, sales of titles and consoles totaled just under $1,000,000,000 last month. It was the highest grossing month of May since 2008, and saw a 52% sales increase compared to this time last year.

We need some new titles to spruce up the chart in June and July!

Here’s the top ten, according to NPD:

  1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
  2. Grand Theft Auto V
  3. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  4. NBA 2K20
  5. Mortal Kombat 11
  6. Red Dead Redemption II
  7. Minecraft
  8. Final Fantasy VII: Remake
  9. Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey
  10. Star Wars: Jedi: Fallen Order
