'Battlefield 1’ debuts at No 1, continuing EA's run at the top

Battlefield 1

EA knock themselves off the top spot with the highly anticipated ‘Battlefield 1’ debuting at No1 (PS4, Xbox One and PC).  The Battlefield series, developed by Digital Illusions has been around since 2002’s PC only ‘Battlefield 1942’ and the current release is a definite return to form, outselling the combined week 1 sales units of the previous 2 versions (‘Battlefield 4’ in 2013 and ‘Battlefield Hardline’ in 2015).  ‘Battlefield 1’ week 1 sales units are just under the amount generated by Ubisoft’s week 1 for ‘Tom Clancy The Division’ back in week 10 this year. 

EA’s ‘FIFA 17’ drops to No2 after 3 successive weeks at No1 (-36%)  and 2K/Take 2 remain at No3 with ‘Mafia III’.  Microsoft drop 2 places to No4 with ‘Gears of War 4’.  The second highest new entry at No5 is Warner’s PS4 and Xbox One ‘Batman: Return to Arkham’.  There are 2 other new releases within the Top40:  debuting at No15 is 2K/Take 2’s ‘Civilization VI’  for PC and debuting at No19 is Warner’s ‘Lego Harry Potter Collection’ on PS4.
