The Gears aren’t enough to dethrone football.
The Coalition’s Gears of War 4 debuted worldwide last week on Xbox One and Windows 10, earning itself second place in the UK game charts ending October 15th as per Gfk Chart-Track. FIFA 17 managed to stay in the top spot, scoring its third straight number 1 spot in the past few weeks.
Mafia 3 was pushed down to third place and was followed by WWE 2K17 in fourth place. Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration also debuted in a strong spot at fifth place, which is pretty good considering its status as a PS4 port. Forza Horizon 3 remains strong at sixth place while PlayStation VR Worlds, Skylanders Imaginators, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and Rocket League rounded out the rest of the charts.
Interestingly, PlayStation VR titles didn’t dominate the charts despite the hardware debuting on October 13th. There’s still time though, especially given Sony’s claims of huge demand. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.
