It'll still be CoD, Lol.

Modern Warfare 2 beat everything last year as per usual in US NPD even Elden Ring which had massive hype behind it and came out 8 months before it and the same in Europe, after CoD it'll probably be Fifa as per usual, I wish there was a year without a CoD/Fifa so it would make things more interesting.

After that though, it's a tossup between Diablo, Hogwarts Legacy and Breath of the Wild 2.

Spider-Man 2 after those, it'll be hurt by being PS5 only unless the attach rate is crazy.

I'm not so sure. 

1. CoD will only have 9 or 10 weeks of sales on the year as a late October release. Hogwarts Legacy already sold 12m in the first two weeks (more than Elden Ring sold last year), and will receive multiple price cuts before the end of the year (more price cuts than Elden Ring got in 2022 as WB is better about discounting games than Namco Bandai is), including likely being down to $30 by Black Friday. It also still has 3 more platform releases to go, with Switch in particular receiving a metric crap ton of Hogwarts preorders so far. Diablo as well has time for some price cuts before the end of the year and will probably be down to at least $35 by Black Friday.

2. CoD this year is said to have started as an expansion pack for CoD MW2 before Activision decided to turn it into a full game. The game will be rushed as a result which could hurt the reviews and sales, and also some people may hold off and wait for a sale since the multiplayer is basically just an expansion pack for CoD MW2, reusing maps and weapons and such from MW2 and then adding new maps and weapons and such to them. I think this will be among the lower selling CoD's, perhaps even lower than CoD Vanguard in 2021, which was the lowest selling CoD since CoD became huge in 2007 with CoD 4: MW.
