A well-known gaming analyst NPD reveals that Activision’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was the most selling game in the US in 2014, followed by Madden NFL and Destiny.

The video game charts have made it clear that Activision’s Call of Duty has become number one in the U.S. in terms of sales and revenue.

The game sales have soared and gamers bought most copies of Call of Duty in December 2014. It was a good year for Activision, though the game sales globally have decreased, but as far as NPD’s retail calculations go, Call of Duty win’s the loving hands down. Activision Blizzard’s military combat game had its biggest month during the holiday season.

NPD analyst’s data says it clearly that Advanced Warfare leads the numbers on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3 and even PCs. The numbers are from the U.S. alone and based on revenue, Call of Duty leads as the number one franchise in the U.S. Activision Publishing CEO announced and said,’’ As much fun as we had making these games, we’ve had even more fun playing alongside you. Stay tuned. We have more exciting games in store for fans this year.”

Overall the industry might be affected, but Activision has won the race this year. Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Ubisoft and Nintendo have a lot to prove and fight for in 2015.
