The Division 2 Gets Off to a Solid Start Debuting at the Top of the UK Charts

The Division 2 Gets Off to a Solid Start Debuting at the Top of the UK Charts

Unsurprisingly, Ubisoft's latest release in The Division 2 has found its way to the number one spot on the UK charts this week.

Of the first slate of releases here in the opening months of 2019, Ubisoft’s The Division 2 was widely regarded as one of the titles that would likely do the best at market. After its first week of availability, those projections seem to be holding true so far.

Over in the UK, The Division 2 made its debut as the best-selling video game of the week. As the only major new release of the week, it’s not shocking that the game was able to achieve this feat. That said, it might not be all good initial signs for Ubisoft.

According to GamesIndustry.bizThe Division 2’s launch sales in the UK were just 20% of the launch sales of the original The Division. That said, since digital sales aren’t taken into account with the UK sales chart, it’s hard to know just what the exact disparity between the two games might be. Plus, The Division 2 released formally on a Friday compared to the original’s Tuesday launch date.

As for other notable appearances on this week’s list, Rockstar has capture second and third respectively with Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto V. Last week’s top seller in Devil May Cry 5 meanwhile has dropped down into sixth while Bandai Namco’s One Piece: World Seeker debuted all the way down at 28th.

Per usual, you can check out the full top-40 list below.
