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.”
