UKIE/GfK Chart-Track has released the charts for boxed video game software sales in the UK for the week ending March 16, and unsurprisingly, The Division 2 has debuted in pole position. What’s interesting, though, is that in spite of topping sales charts, the looter shooter has seen disappointing sales nonetheless, managing only 20 per cent as much sales as the first The Division did when it came out in 2016 (via GamesIndustry).

There is the fact, as is the case every week, that these sales only account for physical sales, which is something that has seen retail sales for several titles drop down in recent years, from FIFA 19 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to Battlefield 5Anthemand many others. In 2017, Destiny 2 also saw a drop in physical sales as compared to its predecessor. Total sales for The Division 2, accounting for digital distribution as well might present a prettier picture for Ubisoft. 60 per cent of the looter shooter’s sales came through PS4 copies.

Meanwhile, Devil May Cry 5which debuted on top of the charts last week, has fallen down to sixth place, with Anthem falling out of the top 10 and into eleventh place. One Piece: World Seeker was another new release this week, and charted at 26th position. Meanwhile, the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2 and FIFA 19 continued to perform strongly, landing at 2nd and 4th places respectively. Grand Theft Auto 5, nearly six years old at this point, saw a surge in sales, jumping from tenth place to third, with a remarkable 121 per cent week-on-week improvement.
