The juggernaut that is Modern Warfare 2 has beaten God of War Ragnarok to be the top-selling video game in the UK for November 2022, according to the latest figures from GSD (Games Sales Data). Despite not claiming the top spot, though, the Santa Monica Studio game was partially responsible for boosting PS5 sales by 71% from October, with the God of War Ragnarok PS5 bundle claiming about 38% of all PS5s sold in the month.

As disseminated by GamesIndustry, God of War Ragnarok has beaten both FIFA 23 and Pokemon Scarlet/Violet (though digital sales are not available for it) in sales in the UK for November 2022:
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
- God of War Ragnarok
- FIFA 23
- Pokemon Violet
- Pokemon Scarlet
- Football Manager 2023
- Sonic Frontiers
- Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
- Grand Theft Auto 5
- LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
We should note, though, that Modern Warfare 2 is a multiplatform game and released in late October, so it had more than a week head start on Ragnarok, which released on November 9.
Rounding out the Top 20, Horizon Forbidden West and The Last of Us: Part 2 came in at fourteenth and fifteenth place, respectively.
God of War Ragnarok has also beaten the sales figures of its predecessor, the God of War reboot from 2018, exceeding them by 44%. While DLC for the game is unlikely, it was named TIME’s best game of 2022 over Elden Ring.
