Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 has retaken the top spot in the UK physical sales chart this week thanks to a quiet period in major new releases. Ubisoft are doing a great job of keeping the game in the spotlight with regular updates, including free additional content, and responding well to player feedback.
This is the second time The Division 2 has been at the top of the charts, with the first time being around its launch in March. The game saw a drop in week-on-week sales of 30 percent, but is still performing well with little to no competition.
The only new game to enter the top 40 games in the UK physical chart this week was Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission. The game debuted in twenty-sixth place, though with a niche fan base it wasn’t likely the title would climb very high in the chart.
Last week’s number one game, Yoshi’s Crafted World, saw a decrease in sales of 61 percent week-on-week, meaning it fell to third place in the chart this week. FIFA 19 also saw a drop in week-on-week sales, but this time of 23 percent. However, the game still rose to second place in the charts, beating Yoshi’s Crafted World.
Nintendo have a total of four exclusives in the top 10 this week, with Yoshi’s Crafted World being the first. Also in the top 10 are: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition in fourth place, New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe in ninth place, and Super Smash Bros Ultimate filling out the end of the chart in tenth place.
The new souls-like hit, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, fell to fifth place this week from third last week. Rockstar Games had a good week with Red Dead Redemption 2 rising to sixth place, most-likely because of the update the online beta received, and Grand Theft Auto 5 rose to 8th in the chart.
Early Easter sales are thought to have provided a boost to games elsewhere in the chart, with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey rising to eleventh with a 187 percent sales boost. Shadow of the Tomb Raider re-entered the chart in twenty-first place thanks to sales almost doubling.
