Red Dead Redemption 2 Finishes Atop UK Sales Chart for Third Straight Week to End 2018

Red Dead Redemption 2 Finishes Atop UK Sales Chart for Third Straight Week to End 2018

Rockstar Games has capitalized on a successful 2018 by once again seeing Red Dead Redemption 2 finish at the top of the weekly UK sales chart.

The final week of 2018 has now come and gone and once again, Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 has found itself at the top of the weekly sales chart in the UK.

Despite a litany of year-end sales that saw a variety of games shifting around on the weekly sales chart, Red Dead Redemption 2 held firm in the number one position for the third straight week to close 2018. Once again this week, FIFA 19 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 followed closely behind in second and third place respectively. On the year as a whole, GamesIndustry.biz reports that these three titles were the best-selling of 2018 in the UK, which is unsurprising if you’ve been following these charts every week.

The top five positions as a whole this week have remained the exact same with the only swap being Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Battlefield V swapping positions at fourth and fifth. The rest of the top 10 positions are filled with usual suspects such as Forza Horizon 4Spyro Reignited TrilogyMario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.

January is a busy month for game releases in 2019, so it’ll be interesting to see which games come out of the gate hottest to start the new year. Until that time, you can check out the final weekly top-40 list for the UK attached below.
