UK Game Sales: Infinite Warfare Beats Watch Dogs 2

by Damian Seeto


The first Watch Dogs game sold lots of copies back in 2014. Sadly, it looks like Watch Dogs 2 didn’t have a smashing debut as it got beat by Infinite Warfare.

As noted by GFK Chart-Track, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was still the best selling game for the third week in a row. It managed to stay on top despite sales dropping by 46 percent.

Watch Dogs 2 had to settle for the runner-up position. No other details were given, but the first game broke Ubisoft’s sales records back in 2014. The Division then broke Watch Dogs’ record earlier this year. It sounds like the sequel to Watch Dogs only had a soft launch in the UK.

FIFA 17 as always continues to be a top seller over in the UK. Sales actually increased by 1 percent. Battlefield 1 took out the fourth spot with sales dropping by only 5 percent.

Thanks to Survivor Series and discounts, WWE 2K17 sales rose by 173 percent to take out the fifth position in the chart. 2K Games heavily promoted the game thanks to the Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg main event.

The only other “new release” in the top 40 this week is the remasters of the older Assassin’s Creed games. The Ezio Collection debuted at number 10.
