Dishonored 2 launch sales down 38% over the original

It appears the lack of pre-launch reviews harmed Dishonored 2’s launch week sales.


The stylish stealth adventure enters at #4 in the UK chart, with sales down 38% over the original.

As Chart-Track noted though, it may have performed better digitally – the Xbox One pre-order edition came with the remastered original for free, which was no doubt a tempting offer for some.

Incidentally, it made #3 in the PS4 chart and #6 in the Xbox One chart.

Going back to the top 40, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare claims its second no.1. FIFA 17 moves back up to #2, Battlefield 1 drops to #3 and then at #5 it’s Skyrim: Special Edition.

The bottom half of the top 10 sees a slight shuffle. Forza Horzion 3 is at #6, Overwatch leaps back in at #7 – up from #18 thanks to price cuts – Titanfall 2 is at #8, LEGO Dimensions rises all the way from #37 to #9 and then at #10 it’s the year-old Star Wars Battlefront.

GTA V, Mafia III, Football Manager 2017 and Skylanders Imaginators all departed the top ten this week.

As for other new arrivals, Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization made #33 while Ubisoft’s Eagle Flight swooped in at #39.

Crytek’s Robinson: The Journey – another full price PSVR title – failed to make either the top 40 or the PS4 top 20.
