Hogwarts Legacy Is The Best-Selling Game Of 2023 In US, Beating Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3

Wizarding World RPG Hogwarts Legacy has officially triumphed as the best-selling video game in the US for 2023, which means this is the first time since 2008 that a non-Call of Duty game or Rockstar title didn’t achieve that crown. Speaking of which, Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 had to settle for second place.

The news was dropped by Circana executive director, Mat Piscatella, who revealed on Twitter that Hogwarts Legacy ranked as the best-selling game of last year in the US in terms of dollar sales on PlayStation formats, with Xbox platforms coming second and fifth on Nintendo Switch (this version didn’t appear until November 2023).

Hogwarts Legacy’s success probably isn’t surprising seeing as how Warner Bros. confirmed earlier this month that the game had sold 22 million copies in 2023.

There’s a couple of points worth mentioning before you look at the Top 10 below, though. For starters, Diablo IV would have probably ranked higher if it not for the fact Activision Blizzard doesn’t disclose sales, while download data for publishes such as Nintendo isn’t included, which means Super Mario Bros. Wonder and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom would have also probably done better.
