For Honor Takes Top Spot on the UK Sales Charts This Week; Sniper Elite 4 Comes in Second

on February 20, 2017 8:15 AM

The 7th week of the 2017 UK Sales Charts are in, and unlike the 6th weekRockstar’s GTA V  is no longer sitting at the top, with Ubisoft’s new IP For Honor now holding that honor. See what I did there?

Launched on Tuesday, For Honor debuts on top giving Ubisoft their first taste of the throne since Tom Clancy’s The Division almost a year ago. Further, it is the biggest new IP to launch since No Man’s Sky, with 57% of sales on PS4, and 43% on Xbox One.

Another game making its debut this (past) week, Sniper Elite 4 from Rebellion Developments, also found success, landing at number two and pushing Grand Theft Auto V to the number 3 spot. This marks the first time since week 39 of last year, when FIFA 17 and Forza Horizon 3 released, that two new titles took the number one and two spots.

Rounding up the rest of the top five was FIFA 17 at number four, and Battlefield 1 at number 5. Last week’s number two, NiOh feel all the way to number 12, but this could be due to the game being very hard to find everywhere.

Other new entries included Bandai Namco’s Dragon Ball Fusions on the 3DS, which took the number 36 spot.

Here’s the full Top 40 for Week 7 2017 (the week ended on February 18th)

It’s important to note this only includes physical sales, and not digital sales.
