Sony released the list of its highest-downloaded games across all its platforms in May, and Rare’s Sea of Thieves has topped the PS5 charts in two territories. The former Xbox exclusive first arrived on the platform on April 30. 

A PlayStation Blog post reveals that Sea of Thieves was the best-selling PS5 title across the US/Canada and the EU, beating out top-performing games like Grand Theft Auto V, Madden NFL 24, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III. That's quite the debut and shows that PlayStation owners have an appetite for the open-world co-op pirate game. It’s also worth noting that Grounded, another first-party Xbox exclusive that was brought to PlayStation in April, placed 11th on this list (for the US/Canada). 

Here’s the full list of top 20 best-selling PS5 games in the US/Canada for May:

  • Sea of Thieves
  • Madden NFL 24
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III
  • Helldivers 2
  • NBA 2K24
  • MLB The Show 24
  • Stellar Blade
  • Fallout 4
  • Who’s Your Daddy?!
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
  • Grounded
  • Another Crab’s Treasure
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
  • NHL 24
  • Killer Klown’s From Outer Space: The Game
  • Rise of the Ronin
  • Assassin’s Creed Mirage
  • WWE 2K24
  • Elden Ring

For more on Sea of Thieves, we spoke to Rare to reflect on the series shortly before its PS5 launch. You can read that retrospective here.
