PGA Tour 2K21 debuts at No.2 in the UK video games chart, but Animal Crossing: New Horizons returns to the top.
It’s oh so close, but there’s no stopping Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which retakes the No.1 spot in the GfK chart despite a slight dip in sales. Last week’s No.1, EA Sports UFC, falls two places to third.
PGA Tour 2K21’s No.2 entry is a strong performance for HB Studios’ golfing series, Last year’s instalment – The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour – failed to crack the top forty, so it looks like the publishing partnership with 2K is paying off.
The rest of the top ten has a familiar feel to it, with Ghost of Tsushima, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and FIFA 20 among the games shuffling places.
There’s also re-entry for Marvel’s Spider-Man at No.9. In fact, retailer discounts mean it’s a good top forty for PS4 exclusives, with Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War, Days Gone, and both The Last of Us games all placing.
Here’s the full GfK video games chart top ten. Remember, the chart only tracks sales of boxed titles and does not include digital purchases.
