FIFA 19 Returns to Number One Position on UK Charts in First Week of 2019

In the first weekly UK sales chart of the new year, FIFA 19 has leapfrogged Red Dead Redemption 2 for the top spot.

The first UK sales chart of 2019 has been unveiled and with the advent of no new releases to kick off 2019, the usual suspects have held firm in nearly all of the top ten positions.

Once again this week, Red Dead Redemption 2FIFA 19, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 are the top three games this week. However, there has been one major change at the top of the chart, with FIFA 19 now claiming the top spot and Red Dead Redemption 2 coming in at second, ending its streak at number one. Ukie reports that FIFA 19 won this week by the slimmest of margins though, proving that Red Dead Redemption 2 is still doing well.

As for every other entry on the chart this week, there have been no noteworthy changes. As mentioned before, the first week of the year was essentially dead when it came to new releases, which means that nothing new charted. Luckily, we do have some new titles launching later this week, which means there will likely be some action when we check out next week’s list.

Until that time, you can look at the full top-40 list for last week below.
