Call of Duty: WWII has returned to the top of the UK chart, making it ten non-consecutive weeks in total. Just one more week is required to equal current franchise record holder Black Ops III.

With the anticipated Monster Hunter World and Dragon Ball FighterZ out Friday, it’s likely a battle for no.1 will occur next week. CoD: WWII may have to wait a few weeks to beat Black Ops III’s record. There’s little doubting it has the capacity to do so.

FIFA 18 moved up to #2 while GTA V – last week’s chart-topper – fell to #3.

Switch titles occupy positions #4 and #5 – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Zelda: BotW, respectively.

PUBG remains at #6 while AC: Origins fell three places to #7. Super Mario Odyssey rose to #8, up from #10. Star Wars Battlefront II dropped two positions to #9, meanwhile.

Then at #10 we have our first new arrival of 2018 – Bandai-Namco’s Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory. The original debuted at #11 roughly two years ago.

Street Fighter V Arcade Edition failed to make the top 40 – it’s a free update to existing owners, after all – but it did make #15 in the PS4 chart.

You may be aware both Asda and Tesco are currently clearing out old stock, with plenty of bargains to be found. This seems to have had an impact on the charts – Titanfall 2 and LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens are back in the top 40, while LEGO Dimensions re-appears to claim #1 in the PS3 chart and #2 in the Xbox 360 chart.
