Red Dead Redemption 2

The UK charts for the week ending October 27th are in and Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 is on top. Though it launched on October 26th, with just a day on the market, it managed to top the charts. It also managed over double the sales of its predecessor, Red Dead Redemption, which released in 2010. This only includes physical retail sales- the PS4 version accounted for 68 percent of total units sold.

According to GamesIndustry.biz, the game managed to sell slightly more than Call of Duty: WW2 in its first week. It’s currently behind Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare as the fastest selling non-FIFA title this generation. If all of this wasn’t enough though, it also helped the UK retail market’s revenue which saw a 2.8 percent increase year-to-date. The market did see a 3.4 percent drop year-to-date in units sold though.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 fell to second place in the charts, followed by FIFA 19 in third. Forza Horizon 4 moved up slightly to fourth place, while Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Spider-Man slipped to fifth and sixth respectively. LEGO DC Super-Villains, Super Mario Party, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy round out the top ten.
