2016, beaten by Pokemon, Fifa and Uncharted.
2014, Pokemon again
2013, GTAV and Pokemon
2006-2010: Anything the Wii and DS churned out
So it's actually not that often that CoD was leading unless you add up all versions. And Fifa is doing worse than I remembered.
But considering Pokemon consistently beat CoD, if Pokemon would be to come out this year for the Switch, it should take the first spot. Otherwise, CoD, Fifa and Smash will likely duke it out on top
Why is FIFA doing worst if FIFA 17 sold more than FIFA 16 and FIFA 18 is selling more than FIFA 17?
and there are not new consoles coming this year so FIFA 19 should easily beat FIFA 18.
my bet are on FIFA 19, COD BO 4 and RDR.
