Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has topped the PS4 sales charts for 2018, leading all games in digital downloads.

Black Ops 4 was one of the most hyped games of 2018, with the Blackout battle royale mode taking over Twitch at times.

Rounding out the top 5 is Marvel’s Spider-Man, God of War and surprisingly, Grand Theft Auto 5 – a game that released in 2013. Open world adventure games Monster Hunter: World and Far Cry 5 made the top 10 with annualized sports releases NBA2k19, FIFA 19 and Madden 19.

Missing from the list are major shooters like Star Wars: Battlefront 2 and Battlefield V, both of which received negative feedback leading up to launch.

If you are wondering where Fortnite is on the list, PlayStation put free-to-play games in a different category.

Fortnite topped the F2P list, followed by H1Z1, Brawlhalla, Warface and Paladins.

Black Ops 4 may hold the top spot for a long time as the game is being updated to include a new Zombies mode and finally, League Play. However, the League Play format Treyarch detailed is something a lot of the community is not interested in.
