A slight shuffle of positions sees Call of Duty: WWII reclaim the top spot in the UK games chart.
It’s been another quiet week for new video games in the UK, something reflected in this week’s software charts from GfK Chart-Track.
Activision’s Call of Duty: WWII returns to the No.1 spot after a gap of three weeks, with Grand Theft Auto V dropping two places to 3.
Elsewhere, the usual suspects play a little game of leapfrog, with Nintendo’s trio of Switch stalwarts – Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8, and Super Mario Odyssey – all moving up the chart, to positions 4, 5, and 8. The Xbox One port of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds holds steady in 6th place.
In terms of new games, it’s a far cry from the relentless lineup of weekly digital releases coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch. The only new physical release to chart is Digimon: Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory, which squeaks into the top ten. Capcom’s Street Fighter V Arcade Edition doesn’t even make the top 40.
In the lowers reaches, Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six: Siege makes a reappearance at 17, and Middle-earth: Shadow of War re-enters at 19th.
You can see the full UK chart for the week ending January 19, 2018 at the GFK Chart Track website.
