Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 continues to sell very well over in the UK. It has been the best selling game in the region for seven straight weeks.

GFK Chart-Track gave its weekly report on the UK video game charts. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was the best selling game on all formats. It has been number one for seven weeks now. Sales only dropped by 4 percent compared to the prior week.

Another UK favorite is FIFA 16. The game jumped up to second place with sales actually going up by 4 percent compared to last week. Grand Theft Auto V held the third spot. It’s now 2016 and a game released several years ago is still selling very well.

Impressively, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege jumped to the fourth position. This is a higher position than when it debuted back in the first week of December.

Star Wars Battlefront dropped to fifth place. Hype for Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens is starting to slow down as everyone has seen it by now. With no DLC announcements soon, people have not been buying Battlefront. This might change once EA announces another update soon.

The “newest” game in the top 10 is Resident Evil Origins Collection. This is just remasters of older games. It came in at number six. The seventh, eighth and ninth positions belonged to Life is Strange, Just Cause 3 and Fallout 4 respectively.

The biggest surprise is that Dishonoured: Definitive Edition entered the top 10. This game was released back in August 2015. If you count the original game, that came out in 2012. It’s quite impressive a remaster sold well in January 2016.
