Red Dead Redemption 2 wasn’t able to become the fastest selling game of the year, failing to beat FIFA 19’s launch week sales, but it has achieved stronger second week sales than any other game this year. Or in fewer words: it’s still selling incredibly well.

Four new releases also break the top 40, with two arriving within the top ten: the budget priced LEGO Harry Potter Collection at #8 (technically a re-entry), and the physical release of Football Manager 2019 at #9.

Diablo III: Eternal Collection on Switch made #15, while Call of Cthulhu took #27.

Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun! made #11 in the Switch top 20. That’s not bad going at all, considering the £90 price tag.

Going back to the all-formats top ten, positions #2, #3 and #4 remain unchanged, respectively occupied by Black Ops 4, FIFA 19, and Forza Horizon 4.

Marvel’s Spider-Man crawls up to #5, AC Odyssey fell to #6, Crash Bandicoot rose from #10 to #7, and then at #10 it’s a re-entry for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

LEGO DC Super-Villains, Super Mario Party and Shadow of the Tomb Raider depart the top ten this week, meanwhile. With Fallout 76, Battlefield V, Hitman 2 and Spyro on the horizon, they may struggle to make a top ten comeback.
