July was a mild month when it came to high-profile video game releases, and sensing a brief window of opportunity, Grand Theft Auto V seized that moment to rise back to the top of the charts. According to Sony, Grand Theft Auto V was the most-downloaded game on PS5 in the US, Canada, and Europe, while the well-received Remnant II had to settle for second place. Grand Theft Auto V lifetime sales are now at 185 million as of August 2023, and to put that into perspective, the entire Resident Evil franchise recently celebrated 146 million sales across the series.

Remnant 2 developer still has plenty of reasons to celebrate, as it surpassed sales expectations and topped 1 million sales just a week after it was released. The previous month had seen a number of big game releases, but June’s main eventers all saw drops on the PlayStation charts as several other games reclaimed familiar positions.

Final Fantasy 16, which had strong sales even if they were below Square Enix fan’s infamously high expectations, was the fourth-most-downloaded PS5 game on the PlayStation Store in the US and Canada, and in Europe, it dropped to seventh place. In comparison, Street Fighter 6 saw a huge dip in downloads as it went from being the third-most-downloaded PS5 game in the US and Canada to the 15th most-downloaded, and in Europe, it didn’t even crack the top 20.

As for Diablo IV, Blizzard’s new action-RPG dropped slightly to sixth place on the US, Canada, and European PS5 charts, was in 20th place on the US and Canada PS4 download rankings, and it didn’t reach the top 20 in Europe. The rest of the list is made up of several games which regularly see plenty of downloads on the PlayStation Network, as NBA 2K23, Cyberpunk 2077, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II were all big hits. Interestingly, Mortal Kombat 11 appeared in the charts once again, as with a new game on the way in September, fans are diving back into NetherRealm’s brutal brawling game to prepare for a fresh round of kombat.
