February 2022 NPD: Elden Ring Is The Best-Selling Game Of The Year So Far

Elden Ring PS5 PS4

With the game dominating the conversation everywhere you look, it’s not a huge surprise to learn that Elden Ring is now the best-selling game of 2022 so far in the USA. Apparently, it’s second only to Call of Duty: Vanguard in terms of launch month sales for games released in the last 12 months. It’s doing well, then.

It follows that it’s also the top-selling game for the month of February, pipping Horizon Forbidden West to the post on the monthly chart. Speaking of Guerrilla’s sequel, the PlayStation exclusive has also done very well in the year-to-date chart, debuting in third position. It’s also set a launch month, dollar-sales record for PS5 software, and is first on the PlayStation-specific chart – we’ve no doubt Jim Ryan will be happy with that.

In terms of hardware, the PS5 is 2022’s highest earner, leading the way with regarding dollar sales year-to-date. Nintendo Switch has it beat when it comes to units sold for February and the year so far, but that’s to be expected with Sony still struggling to get PS5 stock out the door.
