But current Circana data, accurate as of the end of November, puts Hogwarts Legacy in the lead. It’s worth noting that, despite poor reviews, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is already the second best-selling game of the year – and will likely perform extremely well through December. Warner Bros will need a touch of magic to hold onto the lead, then.
One factor that’s working in the Harry Potter spin-off’s favour is that it just launched on Nintendo Switch, which has helped boost its sales all over again. If we had to place a bet, we reckon Modern Warfare 3 will just about pip it at the post – but this data at least demonstrates how wildly successful Hogwarts Legacy has been overall.
