Far Cry 5 Was the Best-Selling Game of March 2018


Share.

Cults and piracy were big in March.

The NPD Group released its report on the best-selling hardware and software for last month, with Far Cry 5 coming in on top.

The best-selling hardware platform for March 2018 was PlayStation 4, but the best-selling console for March was the Nintendo Switch 32GB with Neon Red/Blue Joy-Con bundle.

Of the top 4 best-selling games, three were exclusives, with Microsoft’s Sea of Thieves coming in second place, followed by MLB: The Show on PS4 and Kirby Star Allies on Switch. Sea of Thieves “generated the highest launch month sales” for a Rare since NPD started tracking games in 1995.

Here are the top 10 best selling games by revenue for the month of March, according to the NPD Group:

  • Far Cry 5
  • Sea Of Thieves
  • MLB 18: The Show
  • Kirby Star Allies
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • Call of Duty: WWII
  • Mario Kart 8
  • Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
  • NBA 2K18
  • Monster Hunter: World

Grand Theft Auto 5 refuses to stop making the top 10 sales list, in spite of having released in 2013. Hardware spending was down 32% over the same period last year, due mostly to the fact Nintendo launched Switch last March.

Year to date, however, the Xbox One has driven hardware spending up 13%.
