PlayStation Store’s Most Downloaded PS5 Games of the Year – 2021

While many players are looking forward to the most anticipated PS5 games coming in 2022, 2021 was still a huge year for gaming.

2021 was the first full year after the PS5 was released so the competition was tough for the most downloaded game of the year. As always, sports games dominate the list as well as the AAA multiplayer shooters.

However, this year, some PlayStation exclusive games also managed to get a huge number of PlayStation Store digital downloads in the US and Canada in 2021.
