The summer drought with no new AAA titles till September.
Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs managed to out-perform Sniper Elite 3 in the UK this past week according to the latest UKIE game charts (courtesy of Gfk Chart-Track). The latter was originally at number one for the past few weeks but has dropped 53 percent in sales since the week prior, putting it at second place.
Meanwhile, Watch Dogs is also seeing low sales with the past week’s numbers being 18 percent less than the week before. The top ten has remained relatively stagnant due to the lack of new releases. As a result, games like FIFA 2014, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Titanfall, both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Minecraft and even Battlefield 4 continue to sell. Tomodachi Life is probably the only real anomaly since it’s a 3DS title at ninth place.
The next big game release won’t be until The Sims 4 in the beginning of September for PC and it remains to be seen how much of an impact that will have. Stay tuned for more information.
