Most Downloaded PS5 Games of the Year on PlayStation Store – 2021

While many gamers look forward to the most anticipated PS5 games in 2022, 2021 was still a huge year for games.

2021 was the first full year after the release of the PS5, so competition was stiff for the most downloaded game of the year. As always, sports games dominate the list as well as AAA multiplayer shooter games.

However, this year some PlayStation exclusive games also managed to get a large number of digital downloads from the PlayStation Store in the US and Canada in 2021.
