Week ending on April 20, 2019, the UK’s Top 10 chart of the best selling retail and wholesale video games, World War Z has released and took the top of the charts. FIFA 19 holds the second position, and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is pushed down to the third place.

World War Z has finally pushed The Division 2 down from the top of the UK physical sales chart this week, in what was an otherwise unremarkable and quiet period.

Sales for The Division 2 were down by 32 percent week-on-week, meaning it has dropped to third place in the chart. The game held strong in first for two weeks but has now gracefully stepped aside to allow another co-op shooter to take the limelight.

While World War Z, a new cooperative zombie shooter based in the franchise’s movie universe took first place this week, FIFA 19 managed to hold out in second. This is the third week in a row that FIFA 19 has been in second place in the chart, and was aided by a sales boost of 47 percent this week thanks to a promotional Easter Weekend price drop.

The rest of the chart is largely unchanged for the week. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition saw no real increase or decrease in sales, sticking in fourth place. Red Dead Redemption 2 on the other hand dropped to fifth place this week from third place last week thanks to a drop in sales of 9 percent.

Yoshi’s Crafted World also saw a drop in sales this week. The 14 percent decrease means that the game currently sits in seventh place this week, down from fifth last week. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice fell to eighth place this week but only because World War Z claimed the top spot, with no real increase or decrease in sales.

Snooker 19: The Official Video Game entered the chart in ninth place this week. The title pushed New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe down to tenth, but otherwise had very little impact on the chart.

The only other new entries to the chart this week were Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, which entered in twentieth place thanks to the launch of the Nintendo Switch version, and My Time at Portia. The latter release is a new title that gives players a similar freedom to explore and build as that found in the Harvest Moon games or Stardew Valley. The game entered the chart in twenty-seventh place.

As a side note for the chart. Anthem saw a sales boost of 206 percent thanks to sales, pushing it back into the top 40 in fifteenth place.
