FIFA 18 was the best-selling game in Europe in 2017, so that FIFA 19 would continue to dominate next year, so FIFA 20 was again the best-selling a year later, and FIFA 21 was even more successful than it, so it also won the title. for the fourth year in a row. It is therefore not at all shocking that FIFA 22 is the best-selling game on the European market in 2021.
So say at least the current sales data of ISFA, combined based on sales of physical copies and digital versions of games. As GameIndustry.biz journalist Christopher Dring reveals, FIFA 22 is selling better than the previous Fife, which is not surprising because EA boasted that FIFA 22 already had the largest number of active players in the history of the entire series in the first week.
Dring points out that this has not been a successful year for new games. Apart from Fife 22, only Call of Duty: Vanguard and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury were among the ten best-selling new games. The most successful new IP was It Takes Two, and the biggest surprise was Farming Simulator 22 which sold better in Europe than games like Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Forza Horizon 5, or Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
