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.

Weird how you said Starfield will be huge and we all forgot how big Bethesda games are and here you are not even mentioning it. 

The combination of being on gamepass day one and not being on PlayStation will hurt it's sales in comparison to previous Bethesda games like Fallout 4. But I expect it's going to sell incredibly well on Steam regardless. We won't be given sales numbers by Microsoft only players, but I expect it will sell over 10m copies this year so it'll still be up there with the best selling titles regardless.

Fifa, CoD and Hogwarts Legacy will be the best selling titles of the year. Starfield could beat Spiderman 2. It took Ragnarok 11 weeks to get to 11m. Spiderman 2 may become the best selling PlayStation game of all time eventually but unlike Ragnarok it is only on PS5 so selling faster than it will be tough.

BOTW2 isn't going to sell better than Hogwarts Legacy this year. Lifetime it won't do as well as the first game and I don't see it selling 20m units in 2023 while I'm sure Hogwarts can pass that mark.

This would be my guess (assuming I'm not forgetting any major titles):

1st/2nd. Fifa/CoD (whatever they always sell)
3rd. Hogwarts Legacy (20m-24m)
4th. Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (14m-18m)
5th. Diablo 4 (12m-17m)
6th. Starfield (10m-15m)
7th. Spiderman 2 (~10m)
