Top PS5 and PS4 game downloads on PlayStation Store in January 2021

Hitman 3

We’re now in February, and that means that we now know the top game downloads on PlayStation Store in January 2021.

As the second full month for PlayStation 5, it was relatively quiet in terms of new releases. Only two new PS5 games made it into the top 20 this month. Square Enix’s Hitman 3 reached #2 and Humble Bundle’s Temtem just barely cracked #20 (although it came out late in the month).

So what came out on top? Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Well, it’s really not much of a surprise. It was the top-downloaded PS4 and PS5 game in 2020 on the PlayStation Store.

Meanwhile, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales has dropped from #1 in November 2020 to #3 in January 2021. As a PlayStation console exclusive, one might expect it to stick it out at the top spot for longer but apparently not.

Activision’s latest first-person shooter also comes out on top of the PS4 charts. in at #2 on the PS5 charts and #1 on the PS4 charts. Hitman 3 debuts at #17 on the PS4 charts, suggesting that gamers are opting for the PS5 version. The rest of the top 20 is mostly back catalog games like Grand Theft Auto V.
