Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s launch wasn’t enough to knock FIFA 20 from the number one spot in the UK last week. Even despite a 66% decline in week-on-week sales, EA Sports’ ever-popular franchise remains far ahead of the competition when it comes to boxed video game sales, enjoying a second week at number one.
That’s not a huge surprise, perhaps, but a mediocre critical reception certainly wouldn’t have done Breakpoint any favors.
Borderlands 3, meanwhile, remains in the top three even in the face of a 43% drop in sales. Gears 5 also stays in fourth and manages to do so thanks to just a minuscule 1% decline in sales week-on-week.
This week’s other new entry is a remaster of a beloved licensed game; Ghostbusters: The Video Game enters the charts in sixth place, with the PS4 comprising the lion’s share of sales.
The top 10 is as below:
- FIFA 20
- Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint
- Borderlands 3
- Gears 5
- The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening
- Ghostbusters: Remastered
- Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
- Sea of Thieves
- Minecraft: Xbox Edition
- 10 Forza Horizon 3
As noted by Gamesindustry.biz, Minecraft’s sales are being recorded separately for each platform for some reason. Combining all platforms would actually bump the game up to third.
