‘FIFA 18’ retakes the top stop for the first No.1 of the New Year

FIFA 18

EA’s ‘FIFA 18’ re-claims top spot for the first time since a 3 week consecutive run from launch last year (weeks 39/40/41).  Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty: WWII’ drops to No2 after 9 consecutive No1’s, which means it equals but not beats the most consecutive weeks at No1 for a COD title (2009’s ‘Modern Warfare 2’ held a total of 9 weeks at No1, all consecutive). 

Rockstar/Take 2 climb 2 places to No3 with perennial favourite ‘GTA V’ – incredibly after over 4 years since launch (225 weeks on chart) the game has never been out of the All Formats Top 40 – in fact 191 out of 225 positions (85%) are within the All Formats Top 10.  Ubisoft remain at No4 for a third consecutive week with ‘Assassin’s Creed Origins’ – 11 weeks after launch and the title has still dropped no lower than No6 on this chart. 

EA take No’s 5 and 6 with ‘Star Wars Battlefront II’ and ‘The Sims 4’.  Microsoft climb 7 places back in to the Top 10 at No10 with ‘Forza Motorsport 7’, Warner climb 6 places to No11 with ‘Rocket League: Collectors Edition’ and Activision continue to climb with ‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’, up 5 places to No17 thanks to January sales.
