Battlefield 1 Lands Top Spot on UK Sales Chart This Week, Sales Higher Than Battlefield 4 & Battlefield Hardline Combined

It’s Monday morning which could only mean one thing chums: the UK sales charts are in for last week. This week’s victor? Battlefield 1. 

The latest installment in the series, which was birthed all the way back in 2002, appears to be a return to the form, with the current release outselling the combined week 1 sales units of the previous 2 versions: Battlefield Hardline and Battlefield 4. However, it’s not the most successful debut week for a shooter this year, as Ukie’s GFK Chart-Track reveals the sales units generated come in just below Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy The Division debut week earlier this year.

Meanwhile after three sucesseve weeks at the top, FIFA 17 has fallen to the number two spot, while 2K remains the number three spot with Mafia III. Three other new releases also debut in the top 20 this week with, Batman: Return to Arkham grabbing the number 5 spot, Civilization VI coming in at the 15th spot, and Lego Harry Potter Collection debuting at 19.

Over on the PlayStation VR front, titles stumbled a bit in their second week on market, with Until Dawn: Rush of Blood slipping from number 9 to number 21, being the highest ranking PlayStation VR game.

Important to note: the week’s chart only features sales numbers up to Saturday, October 22nd, and includes only retail sales.

Here’s the full Top 40 for Week 42:
