FIFA 18 Ends Call of Duty: WWII’s 9 Week Run on Top of UK Sales Chart

FIFA 18 Ends Call of Duty: WWII’s 9 Week Run on Top of UK Sales Chart

FIFA 18 has reclaimed the UK sales top spot from Call of Duty: WWII after a run of nine straight weeks on top of the all-format chart for the first-person shooter.

The change in position brings an end to WWII‘s dominance in the UK which had seen Activision’s World War II shooter draw level with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2‘s series record of nine consecutive weeks at No.1, but not pass it.

Last weeks top 5 jostle for position in the first week of the year with Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Origins the only non-mover at No.4. WWII drops a place to No.2 as FIFA 18 takes back the No.1 spot for the first time since week 41 of 2017, Grand Theft Auto V continues to sell well with a rather impressive 225 weeks in the top 40 as it climbs 2 places to No.3 this week, meanwhile Star Wars Battlefront II falls 2 places to No.5.

It’s not all bad news for Call of Duty though as the previous entry in the series, Infinite Warfare re-enters the UK charts at No.17 thanks to a boost in January sales.
