Call of Duty wins Christmas week for the fourth straight year in a row and for eight years overall.
It’s the Holiday season in the UK and that means one significant new “exclusive” to the Xbox One has made its debut. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds managed to debut fourth on UK software charts as per Chart-Track, which is fairly impressive given its status in Game Preview. When you factor in that only physical sales are tracked in the charts, then the potential sales for PUBG could be even higher (despite its performance on Xbox One).
Meanwhile, Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: WW2 continues to reign at the number 1 spot, doing so in four straight years as the Christmas No. 1. It equals FIFA’s record for this, achieving this feat for eight years. FIFA 18 is in second place this week followed by Star Wars Battlefront 2 in third.
Assassin’s Creed Origins and Super Mario Odyssey occupy fifth and sixth place respectively. The remainder of the chart consists of Grand Theft Auto 5, WWE 2K18, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Other new debuts include Okami HD at 37th place.
