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

  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  8. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy

  10. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
