God of War debuted at the end of April and it is evident that it was a commercial success. As evidence of this we have the fact that it positioned itself as the best-selling title in the United States during the past month and in doing so it broke a couple of records.

According to the latest report of NPD Group, God of War was not only the best-selling game in April, it is the PlayStation exclusive that generated more revenue during its launch month. This helped sales of software for PlayStation 4 record the highest revenue achieved by a platform in the month of April since 1995, year in which NPD Group began to analyze the industry.

Another detail that is striking is that Far Cry 5 had a good month, being the second most sold title during April in the United States and remaining as the most popular game so far this year. Thanks to the above, Ubisoft has had a good year and remains the distributor with the highest revenues in recent months.

Below, you can see the top-selling titles in April according to the NPD Group report:
