We didn’t expect this week’s chart to go live until tomorrow, today being a bank holiday and all in the UK, but somebody at Chart-Track must be putting in the overtime as here they are.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the UK’s number one for a third week running. It’s believed it’ll hold that position until the year is out, as both Advanced Warfare and Black Ops III enjoyed a three-week run at the top of the chart during festive periods prior.
FIFA 17 holds onto #2, Battlefield 1 remains at #3, Watch_Dogs 2 sits – and stays – at #4 while GTA V holds fast at #5. Or to simplify, the UK’s top five remains unchanged.
Mafia III meanwhile moves up from #10 to #6. The crime caper has caught a second wind over Christmas, thanks to a minor price cut and heavy promotion at GAME.
Ubisoft’s Steep moves up to #7 – its highest chart position so far – while Final Fantasy XV falls to #8.
Skyrim: Special Edition drops two places to #9, and then at #10 it’s Forza Horizon 3 which is up all the way from #16.
Dishonored 2 on the other hand departs the top 10, dropping from #8 to #11.
Titanfall 2 and Gears of War 4 both enjoyed a pre-Christmas sales boost, up 8 and 11 places respectively. Pokemon Sun wasn’t anywhere near as lucky though, falling all the way from #13 to #36.
