Sea of Thieves PS5 Sales

Microsoft's decision to bring former Xbox console exclusives to PS5 is starting to make a lot of sense. Sea of Thieves, the open world pirate sim that seems to have gone from strength to strength over the years, has actually managed to top the PS Store charts for May 2024.

Sea of Thieves released right at the end of April, so it makes sense for it to have rocketed up the charts in the following month — especially when it's being backed by such positive word of mouth. It was number one in both North America and Europe, which is an impressive achievement.

The rest of the charts tell a familiar tale. You've got evergreen titles like GTA 5 and Call of Duty creeping back towards the summit, while Fallout 4 remains quite high off the back of the property's recent revival.

It's also worth highlighting a game called Who's Your Daddy?!, a meme-spawning, asymmetric multiplayer release that's been popular amongst big YouTubers, which launched for PS5 in early May. It's ended up in tenth and ninth in North America and Europe, respectively.

Really, the only other talking point is Helldivers 2, which is finally starting to slip down the charts. The co-op shooter still held on to fourth in North America and fifth in Europe, but these are its lowest positions to date. Up until now, the incredibly well-received blast-'em-up has seemed unstoppable, even going as far to claim the first place spot in April, months after its initial release.

All things come to an end, however, and it'll now be interesting to see whether Helldivers 2 can find a new, long-lasting foothold in the top five.
