The first top 40 of 2018 reveals FIFA 18 has ended Call of Duty: WWII’s nine-week run at no.1

Call of Duty: WWII only needed two more weeks at the top of the chart to beat current record holder Black Ops III’s eleven-week run. As it stands now, it has to settle for matching Modern Warfare 2’s nine-week reign at no.1.

Call of Duty is now at #2 while GTA V climbs to #3. Rockstar’s crime caper has never left the top 40 since release, spending 225 weeks in the chart in total, 85% of which has been spent in the top ten.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is at #4. Chart-Track notes that it has yet to fall lower than #6.

EA takes places #5 and #6 with Star Wars Battlefront II and The Sims 4.

PUBG rises to #7, up from #11. Super Mario Odyssey falls from #6 to #8, and is followed shortly by Zelda: BotW at #9. Then at #10 it’s Forza Motorsport 7.

Rocket League has managed to propel itself back up the chart too, up from #16 to #11.
