Far Cry 5 was the top selling game in March 2018, according to NPD data.  The biggest launch month ever for the Far Cry series, Far Cry 5 surpassed Far Cry 3 with a strong debut that not only put the game into the number one spot for the month, but it’s now the best selling game of the year thus far.

Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo claimed the second, third, and fourth spots, respectively.  Sea of Thieves, MLB 18: The Show, and Kirby Star Allies all saw successful launches on their respective platforms.  Other titles that released in March and managed to crack the top-20 were A Way Out from Hazelight Studios and Level-5’s Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom.  The rest of the list features many of the games that have been there for quite some time.
