However, launch day sales are the lowest in the main series yet.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate released this past Friday worldwide on Xbox One and PS4 and is already at the top of the charts in the UK according to Gfk Chart-Track. The open world action adventure title has displaced FIFA 16, which had a fairly strong reign at the top since release. It should be noted that sales for the game are the lowest for any main series iteration thus far.
FIFA 16 is still in second place though followed by Guitar Hero Live (also released last week), Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Grand Theft Auto 5. LEGO Dimensions sits at sixth place with Destiny: The Taken King at seventh and Forza Motorsport 6 at eighth place. LEGO Jurassic World continues to see a presence in the top ten several months after its release at ninth and Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is in tenth.
It should be interesting to see how Assassin’s Creed Syndicate holds on to its lead considering the release of Halo 5: Guardians this week. Stay tuned for more information on the same.
