Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Lands Top Spot on UK Sales Charts for First Week in 2017

on January 9, 2017 7:49 AM

The first week of the 2017 UK Sales Charts are in, and just like in 2016: Call of Duty Infinite Warfare is featured at the top.

This is 8th week that Activision’s blockbuster shooter has snatched the top spot, and if it manages to hold on for another week and make it nine, it will equal the 2nd highest number of All Formats No1s for a Call of Duty title, matching that of of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. If it holds on for three more weeks, then it will equal to series front runner Black Ops III, which sat at the top for a total of 11 times.

Likewise, FIFA 17 holds onto the number two spot, while the ever-popular Grand Theft Auto V continues to creep its way up the chart, now securely in the number three spot.

Elsewhere, Forza Horizon 3 jumps back into the top ten, from 12 to five, largely thanks to another retailer price promotion, as well as Pokémon Sun which has jumped from 36 to nine.

Important to note: the week’s chart only features sales numbers up to Saturday, January 7th, and includes only retail sales.
