Final UK chart of 2015 sees a top ten shuffle

Don’t be fooled into thinking this week’s UK chart is the first of 2016 – it’s actually the last of 2015, due to the 2nd January cut-off date.

2015 ended with Call of Duty: Black Ops III ruling the roost, making it five weeks at no.1. FIFA 16 still holds the record for weeks at the top during 2015 though, managing six in total.

Star Wars Battlefront remains at #2. It hasn’t left the top three since launch, which tie-ins in nicely with the fact that EA are allegedly on track to meet their 13m target. Industry analyst Michael Pachter firmly believes 12m copies have been sold so far.

Fallout 4 leapfrogs FIFA 16 to finish the year at #3. EA’s soccer sim has to settle for #4, while GTA V is at #5 for a second week.

At #6 it’s Rainbow Six: Siege. This is its highest chart position since launch, no less.

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate holds onto #7, Just Cause 3 falls two places to #8, WWE 2K16 moves up to #9 and then at #10 it’s Forza Motorsport 6.

Meanwhile, The Elder Scrolls Online is the week’s biggest riser – up from #31 to #21 – while LEGO Dimensions is the biggest faller dropping from #22 to #36.

There were no new entries although 3DS farming role-player Story of Seasons – the final retail release of 2015 – made #12 in the 3DS chart.
