As expected, the newly-released Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 takes the top spot on this coveted list. Being the 15th installment in the Call of the Duty series, the game brought in a slew of changes, the most notable being the absence of a definite campaign mode.
Furthermore, Blacks Ops 4 brings in the hugely-popular Battle Royale mode to the franchise with military precision. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, released on 12 October 2018, is Activision's best-selling digital release.
Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 took the second spot on the list. The western-themed game received critical acclaim for its game design and is a huge commercial success. The game sold over 17 million copies in just 12 days since its launch on 26 October 2018, and many believe it to go on to become the best-selling game of 2018. One thing is certain, though, Red Dead Redemption 2 will sure make the most downloaded games of November list as well.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey is the eleventh major installment in the series by Ubisoft Quebec that was released in early October. The open-world adventure set in ancient Greece pleased most pundits with its gameplay, environment and visuals. Assassin's Creed Odyssey is the third most downloaded game after Rockstar's RDR2.
EA Sports' FIFA 19 takes the fourth spot on the list. The game hit the stores late September and is the most polished game ever in the FIFA franchise.
