The 44th week of 2018 has come and gone and just like in the 43rd week of the year, Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 has found itself on top of the UK sales chart.

Red Dead once again bested Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and in the process had the best-selling second-week sales in the UK for any game that has released this year. Not only did Red Dead Redemption 2 have one of the most impressive launches of all-time, but it also seems like the game could have quite the legs.

As for other noteworthy entries on this week’s chart, the top five has mostly remained the same. FIFA 19 followed Black Ops 4 in third with Forza Horizon 4 in a fitting fourth position. Rounding out the top five this week was Marvel’s Spider-Man, which swapped places with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in sixth.

The full top-40 list for last week is below.
