The NPD Group has revealed the top-selling video games of March 2018. According to the group, Far Cry 5, the latest entry in the popular series took the top spot. Rare’s Sea of Thieves, Microsoft’s latest exclusive took the second spot. What’s interesting is that despite the game being a part of Xbox Game Pass, there were enough sales for the game to crack the top three best-selling games of the month.
Other Xbox games in the top 10 include Grand Theft Auto V, Call of Duty WWII, NBA 2K18, and Monster Hunter World. Here’s the complete list of games in the top 10.
- Far Cry 5
- Sea Of Thieves
- MLB 18: The Show
- Kirby Star Allies
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Call of Duty: WWII
- Mario Kart 8
- Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
