After Devil May Cry 5 stormed into first place last week it wasn’t there for long as Ubisoft’s long-awaited sequel The Division 2 has taken the top spot in the UK Gaming Charts.
This, of course, comes as no surprise as players itching for something a little more substantial than Anthem’s disappointing launch are likely jumping ship. That being said, we have a similar story again this week as sales of The Division 2 are nowhere near that of The Division.
According to Chart-Track, The Division 2 only managed to achieve 20 percent of what the first game made in the UK when it launched in 2016. This is likely due to both the update of digital sales, and some players being burned by the first game. That being said, The Division 2 does definitely improve on the first no-end.
Unfortunately, until the UK Gaming Charts includes digital, the physical sales report of The Division 2 concludes that it didn’t go off to a very strong start.
As for last week’s number one, Devil May Cry 5, this title has fallen down to sixth place this week, with a 76 percent week-on-week drop, which is a shame as it’s apparently a pretty great title.
In second place we have a familiar face in the form of Red Dead Redemption 2, which saw a 22 percent rise in sales thanks to retail promotions. The same with GTA 5 which actually finds its way into third place this week with a 121 percent sales increase.
Another rise in sales sees FIFA 19 climb up a place into fourth with a 31 percent increase. The LEGO Movie 2 Video Game also jumps up a place due to the title debuting on Nintendo Switch last week.
Finally, the only other new release this week comes in the form of One Piece World Seeker which lands in twenty-eighth place.
Oh, and Anthem has fallen out of the top ten completely in eleventh place…
