FIFA 19 reclaims top spot from Red Dead Redemption 2 in the latest Ukie/GFK Chart Track software Top 40.

With no new releases it’s a relatively quiet week on the GFK Top 40, the chart that tracks UK physical software sales. Red Dead Redemption 2 – which topped the chart at Christmas and New Year – drops one place, with EA’s FIFA 19 returning to No.1.

The rest of the top ten is rather static, with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Battlefield V, and Forza Horizon 4 holding on to positions three through six.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy move up a place each, to No.7 and No.8, respectively. Marvel’s Spider-Man slips out of the Top 10, and is replaced by Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which climbs one place.

Further down the chart, Ubisoft’s Starlink: Battle for Atlas continues its good run at No.21, helped by some significant discounting at retail. The much-maligned Fallout 76 also shows some staying power at No.17.

Ukie/GfK Chart-Track Top Ten – 5 January 2019

  1. FIFA 19
  2. Red Dead Redemption 2
  3. Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4
  4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  5. Battlefield V
  6. Forza Horizon 4
  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  8. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
  9. Spyro Reignited Trilogy
  10. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

You can see the full chart for the week ending January 5, 2019 at the Ukie website.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
