Final chart of 2016 sees Call of Duty riding high

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has claimed the UK chart’s top spot for a fourth consecutive week. The past three years have seen Call of Duty claim the top spot between Christmas and New Year, so it comes as no surprise.

Would this still be the case if Infinite Warfare had held its price? We aren’t so sure.

FIFA 17 and Battlefield 1 hold onto #2 and #3. GTA V moves up to #4, making it 12 non-consecutive weeks in the top 4 during 2016. Then at #5 it’s Watch_Dogs 2.

Mafia III
remains at #6, Rocket League rockets from #12 to #7 while Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End likewise re-enters the top 10, at #8. Chart-Track reports this was partly down to PS4 bundle sales – the PS4 500GB Uncharted 4 pack accounted for 17% of all PS4s sold last week.

Steep slips to #9 while Skyrim: Special Edition sees us out at #10.

To make way for Rocket League and Uncharted 4 both Final Fantasy XV and Forza Horizon 3 took a tumble – FFXV fell from #8 to #16 while FH3 went from #10 to #12.

Gears of War 4, Overwatch, DOOM, Star Wars Battlefront and Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection meanwhile all rose several positions, with the majority back in the top 20.
