Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 takes top spot from FIFA 19 in UK games chart

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 storms to the top of the UK video games chart, as FIFA 19 slips to second place.

The first ever multiplayer-only Call of Duty game – albeit one with an excellent new battle royale mode – has entered the UK video games chart in first place.

However, physical sales are reportedly down by 50% year-on-year. The decline appears to offset – in part, at least, – by digital purchases. Publisher Activision says that the game has set new digital download records, and that more players connected to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on launch day than last year’s Call of Duty: WWII.


Last week’s No.1, EA’s FIFA 19, drops one place down the chart, as does Ubisoft’s acclaimed Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which drops to third. The only other new entry in the top ten is WWW 2K19, which debuts at No.4.

Of last week’s other new entries, Forza Horizon 4 drops from third to fifth, and Nintendo Switch exclusive, Super Mario Party, falls two places to seventh.

Speaking of the Switch, cult JRPG The World Ends With You enters the chart at No.21. It’s not a bad performance for a port of mobile port of a 2007 Nintendo DS game.

Elsewhere, Captain Toad Treasure Tracker – perhaps buoyed by the enthusiasm for all things Toad and Bowsette – re-enters the UK games chart at No.39.
