Madden NFL 21 Is The Best-Selling Game Of August 2020Comments Off on Madden NFL 21 Is The Best-Selling Game Of August 2020
The latest instalment to the Madden NFL series, Madden NFL 21, was released last month on August 28th on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, to the excitement of many fans of the series. Though it saw lower ratings than any other games in the Madden NFL series, this did not stop it from seeing unprecedented success during its release month.
Best-Selling Digital Game for the PS4
The hype for the new Madden game can be seen in a more quantifiable way through its sales – Sony has recently unveiled which games were downloaded the most over the month of August, and to no-one’s surprise Madden NFL 21 stood out on top in both the US and Canadian charts, repeating what we saw in 2019 upon the release of Madden NFL 20.
This meant that Madden NFL 21 took the top spot above huge-hitters such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the widely acclaimed Ghost of Tsushima, and the vastly popular Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. Quite an impressive feat!
Madden NFL 21 Lives Up to its Predecessors
Though so far considered the lowest-rated game in the series, Madden NFL 21 certainly did not disappoint in terms of figures. Not only was it the best-selling digital game for the PS4, but it was also the best-selling game of August 2020 overall, making this year the 21st consecutive year that a Madden NFL game has been best-selling in its release month.
It also beat out its predecessor Madden NFL 20, seeing double-digit percentage dollar sales growth compared to the previous instalment’s release. It also saw nearly 50% more games in its first week compared to Madden NFL 20’s first week.
Madden NFL 21 is also set to release for the next-gen consoles (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S) upon their releases, which are set to be sometime in 2020’s holiday season. You can prepare for the game’s release on the new consoles by buying Madden 21 coins for UT mode on MUTeamGo.
