Stellar Blade was April’s best-selling game

“Stellar Blade debuted as the best-selling premium game of April and the #16 best-selling game of 2024 year-to-date,” said Mat Piscatella from data analytics company Circana. “Stellar Blade was the only new release in April to rank among the month’s top 20 best-selling premium video games.” Shift Up released the action-adventure game as a PlayStation 5 exclusive on April 26.

Helldivers 2, another Sony-published title, retained its position as the month’s second-best-selling game. Meanwhile, Call of Duty Modern Warfare III rose from 4th to 3rd, with Sea of Thieves and Fallout 4 jumping from #55 and #87 to #4 and #5. Sea of Thieves PS5 port launched on April 30, explaining its sudden jump in popularity. Meanwhile, Fallout 4’s revival can be attributed to the success of the recent Amazon Prime show.

MLB The Show 24 dropped from 3rd to 6th, with Dragon’s Dogma 2 dropping from #1 to #7. It’s followed by Fallout 76, which also rode the Amazon bump all the way from #159 up to #8. Finally, Hogwarts Legacy rose slightly from #10 to #9, with EA Sports FC 24 rising from #12 to #10. Other notable changes include Rise of the Ronin falling from #5 to #11 and Princess Peach Showtime dropping from #6 to #15.
