God of War Ragnarok is a massive success in the United Kingdom, topping Gfk’s UK physical sales charts for the week ending November 12th (via GamesIndustry). Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has fallen to second place, with sales dropping 39 percent week-on-week.

While there may have been some concern about Sonic Frontiers launching so close to Ragnarok, it’s fared pretty well. The 3D platformer debuted in fourth place with five percent more boxed copies sold in its first week than Sonic Forces. The PS5 version made up 40 percent of sales, followed by the Nintendo Switch version at 34 percent, Xbox at 14 percent, and PS4 at 12 percent.

Other new releases include Football Manager 2023 in 11th place, with physical sales down by 18 percent compared to last year’s game. Given its status on PC, digital sales could make up the difference. Stray’s PS4 version received a physical release and charted in 23rd place. Square Enix’s Tactics Ogre: Reborn debuted in 24th place.

Interestingly, the increase in PS5 consoles sold helped raise sales for Horizon Forbidden West. It experienced a 141 percent sales increase week-on-week and rose to seventh place. Nintendo Switch game sales also rose, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe rising by 34 percent, Nintendo Switch Sports by 19 percent, Splatoon 3 by 22 percent, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons by 50 percent.
