Top 10 US Game Sales for May: State of Decay 2 Comes in at #1

Accord­ing the NPD Group State of Decay 2 was a best-sell­er for the month of May, which is slight­ly sur­pris­ing. Although fans of the game have been enjoy­ing the sec­ond title, it’s had a fair share of prob­lems at launch.

State of Decay 2 appar­ent­ly out­shined PlaySta­tion’s exclu­sive, Detroit: Become Human. Although, they did both debut towards the end May. Microsoft seems to be hap­py, since State of Decay 2 did dou­ble sales of the orig­i­nal. That would explain Microsoft pick­ing up Undead Labs.

God of War still man­aged to stay in sec­ond, con­sid­er­ing its pop­u­lar­i­ty, that’s not much of shock. Detroit: Become Human land­ed in third. Far Cry 5, which was in sec­ond the month before, now holds fourth. Don­key Kong Coun­try: Trop­i­cal Freeze fin­ish­es the top five out.

Below is a list for top U.S. sale dur­ing May and top U.S. from the year to date:

I am a Platinum lover and an ex- Cod-aholic. I've been playing games since I was 5 years old and I refuse to quit, despite my mother's attempts to get me to. God of War and its successors are my all time favorite games.
