Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Narrowly Holds UK Spot Top Against Watch_Dogs 2

on November 21, 2016 4:30 AM

Today is Monday, and like every Monday, Gfk Chart-Track posted its sales data and analysis for the performance of the gaming market in the UK last week. Perhaps unexpectedly, Activision’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare managed to keep a hold on the top spot despite the launch of Ubisoft’s Watch_Dogs 2.

“It’s a close battle at the Top as Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ (-46%) remains No1 for a third week.

It narrowly fends off the challenge from new-entry ‘WatchDogs 2’ from Ubisoft for PS4 and Xbox One. EA’s ‘FIFA 17’ (+1%) drops one place to No3 and ‘Battlefield 1’ (-5%) also moves down one place to No4. There’s already a hint of Black Friday dealing within this Chart, as 2K/Take 2’s ‘WWE 2K17’ risies 11 places to No5 (+173%) and Microsoft’s ‘Forza Horizon 3’ remains at No6, but sales units climb +49% over last week. Last week’s big new release, Bethesda’s ‘Dishonored 2’ drops from No4 to No7 (-52%). The only other new release within the Top 40 is also from Ubisoft – debuting at No10 is ‘Assassin’s Creed : The Ezio Collection’, with remastered content for PS4/Xbox One consumers, who will have to wait until this time next year for a full new game in this franchise.”

Below you can check out the top 40 chart, showcasing all the best selling games of the week.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
