Halo 5 tops the list of best selling games in October

Halo 5: Guardians was the best selling game in October, according to NPD sales numbers.

According to the NPD Group, Halo 5: Guardians was the best selling video game in the month of October. This doesn't come as a great surprise, with Halo 5 being the biggest AAA title released that month.

Halo 5 managed to beat out NBA 2K16, Madden NFL 16 and Assassin's Creed Syndicate, among other titles.

Halo 5: Guardians also managed to help sell the Xbox One, making it the best selling console of October in the U.S.

With November signaling big releases like Rise of the Tomb Raider, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, and Fallout 4, it will be interesting to see not only the software numbers, but how they effect the sales of hardware.

A lot of AAA games are coming out this month, so be sure to stay here at Gameskinny for all of your video game coverage.
