The NPD has published its predictions for US game and hardware sales through the end of 2019, anticipating Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to top the charts for the year as the best-selling title by dollar sales.
Should this come to pass, this would be the ninth time Call of Duty was the best-selling US title in the last 11 years.
Overall, analyst Mat Piscatella forecasts a 6% year-over-year growth for overall spending. This is a much smaller jump than previous years, and likely due to the winding down of the current console generation.
