FIFA 21 Is the Best-Selling Game of the UK’s Physical Market in the Final Week of 2020

In the very last week of 2020, FIFA 21 managed to get the first place back in the UK's physical market once again.

2020 has been a very strange year for all the publishers and retailers that deal with physical versions of the game, but it’s going to end very soon, with FIFA 21 leading the UK’s boxed sales chart in the very last week of this year.

Once again, another set of discounts for FIFA 21 worked out for Electronic Arts and the game managed to step up to the top spot of the UK’s physical game market and reign the chart in the final week of 2020. Thanks to FIFA 21‘s 8% increase in week-to-week sale and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s 21% drop in sales compared to the week before the last, EA’s sports hit beat Valhalla to the first place and hiked four steps to stand at the top spot. On the other hand, Valhalla dropped to the second place and ended this year as runner-up, but with a great performance in sales in overall.

The third place was handed over to Animal Crossing: New Horizons after Activision’s Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War sold 42% less than the previous week, during the final days of 2020. This gets more interesting when you know that all versions of Black Ops Cold War were hit by multiple discounts during the last week. The game now holds the fifth place of the table.

Another Nintendo Switch hit, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, reached the fourth place despite having 8% loss in week-to-week sales. But the interesting story of the new table is probably Cyberpunk 2077 that stood at the eight place, below Spider-Man Miles Morales and Just Dance 2021. CD Projekt RED’s latest RPG experienced 57% drop in sales compared to the previous week. The game was never hit by any discounts during this year, but it would probably experience better sales again when the developers launch the big enhancement patches for the last-gen versions of the game.
