Remnant II's immense popularity has been solidified once again, as it claimed the title of the best-selling game in Canada for the month of July. This remarkable achievement was confirmed by both Circana, formerly known as NPD, and The Entertainment Software Association of Canada (ESAC), further validating the game's undeniable appeal. With its captivating storyline, stunning graphics, and addictive gameplay, Remnant II has captured the hearts and minds of gamers across the country. Its success not only speaks to the exceptional quality of the game but also highlights the thriving gaming industry in Canada.
The highly anticipated sequel to Remnant: From the Ashes, developed by Gunfire Games, was finally released on July 25th, exclusively for current-gen consoles and PCs. Its top placement in the charts is particularly noteworthy, considering the game's late release in the month. Audiences have responded positively to this action RPG, as evidenced by its impressive sales figure of over one million copies in just the first week. Furthermore, the game has been met with favorable reviews, further solidifying its success.
In the latest gaming sales report, Diablo IV by Blizzard secured the second position, which comes as no surprise given its immense popularity. However, there was an intriguing shift in rankings as June's second best-selling game, Final Fantasy XVI, dropped to sixth place in July. On the other hand, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom managed to hold onto its position at third place for another month. These fluctuations in the rankings highlight the dynamic nature of the gaming industry, where new releases constantly vie for dominance while established titles strive to maintain their fan base.

It is interesting to observe that none of the Canadian games made it to the list. Typically, one of EA Vancouver's renowned sports titles, such as NHL or FIFA, secures a place on the charts. However, it is crucial to note that we are currently in the period just before the release of the next installments in these series, namely NHL 24 and EA Sports FC 24. It is highly probable that individuals are simply anticipating the arrival of these highly anticipated games, explaining their absence from the list.
