Call of Duty: WWII’s sales were 57% higher than Infinite Warfare

We expected chart compilers Gfk to provide a whole host of Call of Duty related statistics this week, but they simply state that Call of Duty: WWII‘s sales were 57% higher than Infinite Warfare, while revenue was up 21%.

The ‘Legacy Edition’ of Infinite Warfare was remarkably popular, hence why the figure for WWII’s revenue is lower than the uptake.

In short: the WWII setting has proven popular, but it’s safe to assume launch sales were behind the likes of Black Ops III, Ghosts, and Advanced Warfare.

Assassin’s Creed Origins – last week’s chart-topper – falls to #2 while FIFA 18 remains at #3.

Super Mario Odyssey also dropped two places, falling to #4. Then at #5 it’s Gran Turismo Sport.

During its second week on sale Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus drops to #6.

The remaining games in the top ten are all re-entries – Forza Motorsport 7, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Forza Horizon 3, and finally Middle-earth: Shadow of War at #10.

GTA V, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Destiny 2 and WWE 2K18 all depart the top ten this week. Save perhaps for South Park, we imagine the rest will return following a price cut.

Focus’ Spintires: Mudrunner was the top 40’s only other new entry, in at #24.

Monopoly for Nintendo Switch (yes, that’s what it’s called) did make #7 in the Switch chart, however, while Kirby Battle Royale clocked in at a lowly #31 in the 3DS chart.
