UK Game Charts: Overwatch is Blizzard’s Fastest Selling Console Title
Debuts in top spot and displaces Uncharted 4.
Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch made its debut in the UK and managed to hit the top spot in sales according to Gfk Chart-Track. The multiplayer hero shooter displaced Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End from its number one position and is now Blizzard’s fastest selling console title till date.
This is especially noteworthy when you consider that aside from Diablo 3, it hasn’t had much of a presence on consoles at all. Overwatch is also its first simultaneous release on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End dropped to second place while DOOM went to third. Homefront: The Revolution inexplicably continues to linger in the charts at fourth place. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is in fifth place followed by Ratchet & Clank, FIFA 16 and Tom Clancy’s The Division.
Another noteworthy debut is Total War: Warhammer at ninth place. Don’t let that fool you as to its success since Sega stated that it sold over 500,000 copies on Steam since launching. Grand Theft Auto 5 rounds things out at tenth place.
