With developer Campo Santo revealing last month that Firewatch outsold their “wildest expectations,” Sony announced today that it was the #1 best-selling digital PlayStation 4 game of February 2016 in North America and Europe – and was the #1 digital game overall in Europe for the month.

Looking at other new releases, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth was #1 on PlayStation Vita in North America and Europe, while the PS4 version finished in 20th and 19th. Also, Far Cry Primal was 2nd on PS4 in both regions, Street Fighter V was 5th in NA on PS4 but didn’t chart in EU, Unravel was 16th in NA and 5th in EU, and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm was 4th in NA and 11th in EU.
