COD Black Ops 4 Beats Red Dead Redemption 2 In Sales For October

Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 absolutely flew off the shelves when it launched last month, and honestly, people really don’t have a bad word to say about it.

Pulling in shockingly impressive launch sales numbers, and wowing both fans and critics, RDR2 has just about become one of the most popular games of all time.

At least, people thought that was the case…

It’s been announced [via IGN/NPD] that RDR2 wasn’t the best-selling game in North America for October 2018 – Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 was.

Now, to put that in perspective, Black Ops 4 released a whole two weeks before RDR2, giving it a chance to sell a butt-load more copies – especially considering that RDR2 launched in the last week of the month.

But, Black Ops 4 is reportedly the best-selling game of the whole of 2018, with its launch-month monetary sales jumping to the eighth highest on record (since NPD started tracking the sales of games in 1995).
