Call of Duty: Vanguard had to settle with second place with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales finishing in third. The only other exclusive to break into the top 10 was Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

While over on PlayStation 4, NBA 2K22 only managed fourth with the juggernaut that is Grand Theft Auto V grabbing the top spot. Last year’s Call of Duty entry, Black Ops Cold War, finished ahead of Call of Duty: Vanguard in second, and Minecraft completed the top three.
