Red Dead Redemption 2 has maintained its position at the top of the UK physical retail sales chart for the third week in a row. The game is selling extremely well with 17 million units shipped already, 2 million more than the original game sold entirely. Week-on-week sales for Red Dead Redemption 2 have fallen by 53 percent, but that hasn’t stopped it from holding around 30 percent of the market.
The rest of the top five of the chart didn’t change over the last week. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is in second place, FIFA 19 in third, by only a couple of hundred units sold, Forza Horizon 4 is in fourth, and Spider-Man rounds out the top 5 behind it.
Much like Red Dead Redemption 2 the rest of the top five games in the chart have experienced a decline in sales week-on-week. The fact that they haven’t moved shows how strongly they’re still selling weeks after release.
LEGO DC Super-Villains managed to climb into the top ten this week, having been in 12th place last week. This move pushed the latest football management simulator, Football Manager 2019, down to 13th place.
Further down in the chart EA Sports UFC 3 has re-entered in 40th position, while Mario Tennis Aces has returned in 29th place, and Splatoon 2 now sits in 36th place. The imminent launch of the first piece of DLC for Jurassic World Evolution has provided a boost to sales, pushing the game back into the chart in 32nd place this week.
This movement saw F1 2018, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Call of Cthulhu, and Astro Bot Rescue Mission all fall further down the chart past 40th place.
