Death Stranding Becomes Second Biggest PS4 Title to Launch in 2019

Death Stranding Becomes Second Biggest PS4 Title to Launch in 2019

Death Stranding jumps in at #2 while Call of Duty: Modern Warfare holds the top spot.

With Monday coming in hot, we’ve seen the latest UK physical sale charts arrive. And sure enough Death Stranding and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare are sitting pretty in the top two spots, while Luigi’s Mansion 3 gets pushed down.

Death Stranding launched on November 8 and has become the second biggest PS4 exclusive to release this year. It’s also only a timed-exclusive until next year when it’s set to launch on Steam and the Epic Games Store in Summer 2020. The UKIE charts results also make Death Stranding the second biggest new IP to launch behind Days Gone.

Days Gone launched in April 2019, and in May it claimed the top spot on the UKIE sales chart for the third weeks running.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which launched on October 25, still sits at the top spot for the third week running. In its first three days, the shooter from Infinity Ward made more than $600 million. Gamesindustry.biz reports that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare continues to perform well, with sales at 26% more than the previous title, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Other titles include Luigi’s Mansion 3 which has dropped from its number 2 spot down to number 4 sitting just under FIFA 20. It is higher than EA’s newly released Need for Speed: Heat which comes in at number 5 after launching on November 8.
