Every season we are accustomed to seeing the FIFA 21franchise at the top of the sales charts, but it’s not usually the case in the US, where American football (or rugby) is more popular. This year, FIFA 21 has finally managed to lead the list of the best-selling games in the US in its launch month (October).
It is not a trivial achievement since it also takes that first place on both consoles, PS4 and Xbox One, as reported by NPD Group analyst Matt Piscatella. Of course, it doesn’t mean that Americans dispense with one among their national sports, since Madden NFL 21 is in second place.
Behind them, we find another new release, Watch Dogs Legion, curiously the first instalment of the Ubisoft saga not set in the United States, after enjoying the cities of Chicago and San Francisco in its first two instalments. Another important achievement since it achieves it in just 3 days, having been launched on the market on October 29.
Check out the 10 best-sellings of October in the United States:

October, in general, was a fantastic month for video games in North America, as Piscatella said that video game spending was a 14% increase over the same period in 2019.
The next-gen version of FIFA 21 releases in December. Therefore, if you are expecting this epic release, don’t forget you can buy cheaper FIFA coins on FUTeamGo store!
