These were the most downloaded games on the PS5 and PS4 during 2021

Although 2021 is behind us, some companies continue to share relevant data and statistics that they left us the previous year. This is the case of PlayStation, which recently revealed The most downloaded PS5 and PS4 games as of 2021. The listings are interesting because they allow us to observe the popularity of multiple titles; so many third party like the exclusives offered by Sony itself.

Again it is clear that multiplayer games and free-to-play get the most attention. Of course, the company has provided us with multiple lists to divide the performance of the games by platforms (PS4, PS5 and PS VR) and by region. Therefore, in the second item you will see rankings for the United States and Europe, the most important markets for the brand.

Interestingly, in both territories, the most downloaded games on the PS5 are sports titles. NBA 2K22 in the United States and FIFA 22 in Europe. With the PS4 the matter changes, since in the North American country GTA 5 stands at the top. If anyone had doubts as to why Rockstar Games continues to focus so much on this product – even with a version next-gen on the way – these data help dispel doubts.

Another proposal from the past whose presence surprises is the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The game arrived in 2019 and it continues to have a very strong player base. The reason? Currently Warzone is broken since the introduction of Caldera, while Black ops cold war Y Vanguard They did not have the desired acceptance in its multiplayer modes.
