First week sales also 50 percent higher than Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
343 Industries’ Halo 5: Guardians didn’t disappoint on the hype. According to Gfk Chart-Track, not only did the first person shooter outsell other titles across all platforms in the UK but it also averaged 50 percent higher first week sales than Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Halo 5: Guardians also managed 50 percent higher first week sales than Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, which was on top last week but averaged the lowest launch sales for a mainstream Assassin’s Creed title yet. It’s at number two this week though, so the situation isn’t that bad.
FIFA 16 is in third place followed by WWE 2K16 debuting in fourth and Minecraft: Story Mode – which recently released at retail – in fifth place. Grand Theft Auto 5 is in sixth place with Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Watch Dogs, LEGO Dimensions and LEGO Jurassic World rounding out the remaining top ten.
Meanwhile, Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition just managed to enter the top 40, debuting at 37th place.
