Red Dead Redemption 2 Leaps Back to Top Position on Weekly UK Sales Chart

Red Dead Redemption 2 Leaps Back to Top Position on Weekly UK Sales Chart

In a week with no major new game releases, Red Dead Redemption 2 has found its way back to the top of the UK sales chart.

With only two weeks remaining in 2018 and no major new game releases on the horizon, it’s going to be interesting to see what games find their way back near the top of the chart in weekly UK sales.

For the 50th week of the year last week, Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 saw a sales spike to return to the top spot in weekly sales. This is the first time that Red Dead Redemption 2 has found its way back to the top since early November. Last week’s top position holder of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate also fell by three spots this week and ended up in fourth.

As for the rest of this week’s list, the usual suspects continue to dominate in the absence of no new releases. The ever-popular UK staple FIFA 19 followed behind RDR2 this week in second while Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 saw a spike in sales thanks to a variety of discounts which landed it back in the third place position. Rounding out the top 5 this week is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which almost never seems to leave the top-10 despite having released about 18-months ago.

And as always, the full top-40 list for last week is attached below.
