For Honor Tops the UK Sales Charts for Second Straight Week

on February 27, 2017 7:56 AM

The 8th week of the 2017 UK Sales Charts are in, and like the 7th week, Ubisoft’s new IP, For Honor, is top dog, holding off Creative Assembly and 343 Industries’ Halo Wars 2.

As suggested above, this For Honor’s second week at number 1 since its launch. Meanwhile, Halo Wars 2 for Xbox One and PC took the number 2 spot in its debut week, similar to the first Halo Wars game which debuted at the same spot back in week 9 of 2009 — beaten by Sony and Guerrilla Game’s Killzone 2.

The rest of the top five consists of Rockstar’s mega-hit Grand Theft Auto V at number 3, EA’s FIFA17 at number 4, and with Rebellion’s Sniper Elite 4 at number 5, dropping three places from its number 2 finish last week.

With both Horizon: Zero Dawn releasing and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, expect a shake up at the top for next weeks’ charts.

Here’s the full Top 40 for Week 8 2017 (the week ended on February 25th):
