Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 comfortably remains at number one in UK video games chart for a second week.
Red Dead Redemption 2 had the biggest selling second week for a game this year as it held on to the top spot in the GFK Chart Track software chart. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and FIFA 19 remain at second and third, respectively.
The ongoing performance Forza Horizon 4 also deserves a mention. The Xbox racer remains stationary at No.4, a remarkable – and well deserved – achievement for a platform exclusive a month after release. The knock-on effect on Forza Motorsport 7 also continues, with the game remaining in the top twenty at No.14.
Elsewhere in the top ten, the ever-present Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy moves up three places to No.7, and the Lego Harry Potter Collection re-enters the chart at No. 8 following its release on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The Sega-published Football Manager 2019 is also a new top ten entry at No.9.
Further down the chart, Diablo III: Eternal Collection for the Switch debuts at No.15, and Focus Home’s Call of Cthulhu enters at No.27. Sadly, there’s no place in the top forty for Bandai Namco’s wonderful Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum’n’Fun.

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.
