Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 had been the best selling video game in the UK for quite a long time, but now it has been usurped by Ubisoft’s Far Cry Primal according to GFK Chart-Track. Sales for Street Fighter 5 however don’t look great.

Far Cry Primal is Ubisoft’s first number one seller for the company in 2016. It managed to beat both Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and even EA’s Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. The PS4 version sold more copies than the Xbox One.

EA shouldn’t be worried about the sales for Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 as the game sold 31 percent better than its predecessor back in 2014. It’s worth mentioning though that the first game was a timed exclusive for Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Sales for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 took a steep slip this week as it was in number 4. FIFA 16 managed to take the third spot this week. These two games are sure to stay in the top 10 for quite some time.

Capcom should be a little bit worried about how Street Fighter 5 is performing. The game held the number 2 position last week, but tumbled all the way to the tenth spot this week. Sales for the game dropped by a huge 78 percent.

Street Fighter 5 was rated fine by critics, but its official launch was criticized by buyers for its lack of content and poor netcode. Sales might be better later in the year when the game gets more free content.
