Updated January 22, 2019: According to the NPD, Red Dead Redemption 2 emerged as the best-selling game in the United States for 2018.
In October, many gamers expected Red Dead Redemption 2 to beat Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 in the sales charts. While the titles were very close, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 managed to take the crown. This was mostly due to the fact that the popular first-person shooter launched several weeks before the Western adventure. Usually, after a Call of Duty game launches, it's the best-selling title for each month in America. However, that wasn't the case in November.
According to a report by The NPD Group, the following games were the best-selling experiences in November. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's position doesn't take into account digital PC sales. The same goes for Battlefield V and a some other games. While adding the digital PC sales isn't expected to top Red Dead Redemption 2, it's still worth mentioning.

It's great to see Red Dead Redemption 2 doing so well. Hopefully this streak will continue in the months to come because it's arguably the best game to launch in 2018, and one of the best titles ever made. Though, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is no slouch either. It's great to see both games doing so well.
Red Dead Redemption 2 focuses on the events after a robbery goes wrong in the town of Blackwater. Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal, and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive.
