Call of Duty holds the fort

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare remains top of the UK chart for a second week running, fending off six of this winter’s biggest releases.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is the highest placing new arrival at #2. Chart-Track informs that sales were spilt 52% on PS4, 46% on Xbox One and 2% on PC.

Although it misses out on the top spot by a substantial 16,000 copies, it did manage to outsell last year’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue put in a strong appearance too, arriving at #6. Combined sales of Unity and Rouge would have toppled Advanced Warfare, Chart-Track notes.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection entered at #3, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham at #5, Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 at #8 and WoW: Warlords of Draenor at #9.

The rest of the UK’s top ten is comprised of FIFA 15 at #4, Minecraft: PlayStation Edition at #7 and Destiny at #10.

To make way for ‘the big six’ a bunch of titles this week depart the top ten. Specifically, Skylanders: Trap Team, Football Manager 2015, Alien: Isolation, Sunset Overdrive, The Evil Within and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.

No other new titles make the top 40, although we do spy Tales of Hearts R take #2 in the PS Vita chart while Ubisoft’s Tetris Ultimate makes a lowly #32 in the 3DS chart.
