Every week the Belgian Video Games Federation (VGFB) brings us a list of the top 5 best-selling games in Belgium.
In the first week of 2024, the EA Sports FC 24 soccer game took first place. According to EA, the new soccer game had a better launch than FIFA 23, with 20% of the player population being completely new, so they don't have a saved game from a previous FIFA game. EA Sports FC 24 marks the beginning of a new chapter for Electronic Arts after separating from FIFA. EA Sports FC features over 30 leagues, over 700 teams, and over 19,000 licensed footballers. Realism and physics just got better this year with HypermotionV, which uses data from over 180 footballers. In the summer of 2024, EA Sports will receive FC 24, a free update for EURO 2024.
In second place is the shooter Call of Duty Modern Warfare III. This shooter was made to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise. The game has a single-player campaign and is a continuation of the story of Call of Duty Modern Warfare II from 2022. In addition, there is a large zombie survival mode and a traditional multiplayer mode where 16 fan-favorite maps from Modern Warfare 2 have been polished for this. the game .
No. 3 among the best-selling games last week was GTA V, a game that is now 10 years old and is very close to 200 million copies sold. GTA V is the best premium game ever made, and no other full-priced game comes close to the success of GTA V.
Fourth out of the top five is the open-world spin-off game of Harry Potter, Hogwarts Legacy. This game hasn't been in the top 5 for a while, and the release of the Nintendo Switch version, which plays remarkably well according to the community, may have helped boost the sales numbers. Holidays may also have had a positive impact on the number of sales.
Another #5 best selling game is Red Dead Redemption 2. Again a game from Rockstar Games. Red Dead Redemption 2 is still selling very well despite the lack of a next-gen version. Red Dead Redemption 2 now has a place in the top 10 best-selling games of all time.
