It’s another year, which means another Call of Duty game is set to be released. It’s easy to think that some people might just be getting tired with the franchise, but if Cowen & Co. analyst Doug Creutz is to be believed, Call of Duty: Ghosts is set to take over the next-generation of gaming, too.

According to the firm’s data, which is compiled from NPD sale stats and Amazon bestseller information, Ghosts is leading the pack with shooter rival Battlefield 4 at number four.

Shown below are the complete list. The numbers next to the titles are “scores” based on pattern observed from sources over the past five years. Cowen & Co. claims its projections are between 96 to 97 percent accurate.

  • 1. Call of Duty: Ghosts (73)
  • 2. Watch Dogs (69.6)
  • 3. Grand Theft Auto V (58.4)
  • 4. Battlefield 4 (54.7)
  • 5. Killzone: Shadow Fall (30.3)
  • 6. Assassin’s Creed IV (29.2)
  • 7. Forza 5 (18.8)
  • 8. Diablo III (18.2)
  • 9. Batman: Arkham Origins (17.2)
  • 10. Dead Rising 3 (15.0)
  • 11. Ryse (13.2)
  • 12. Saints Row IV (10.1)
  • 13. Knack (7.7)
  • 14. Gran Turismo 6 (5.0)
  • 15. Beyond: Two Souls (3.3)
  • 16. Wolfenstein: The New Order (3.2)
  • 17. Drive Club (3.0)
  • 18. Splinter Cell: Blacklist (2.9)
  • 19. The Bureau: Xcom Declassified (0.4)
  • 20. South Park: The Stick of Truth (0.2)

Of note, Creutz states that the Grand Theft Auto V‘s ranking is “almost certainly” incorrect, as the firm’s data only accounts for sales made since E3 2013. GTAV has been available for pre-order since November of last year.
