With the arrival of FIFA 18 two weeks ago, the number one spot in the UK retail charts has been effectively locked.
FIFA 18 scored the top spot last week, and the week before, toppling Destiny 2 off the top spot. Forza 7 was the big release last week, but it couldn’t sell enough to dethrone FIFA 18.
Even more interesting, FIFA 18 had a really good second week, stronger than FIFA 17’s, thanks in part to less fierce competition. Forza 7, on the other hand, sold less than Forza 6 in its opening week.
This is a bit of a trend for Forza games. Forza 7, Forza Horizon 3, and Forza 6 all landed in the number two spot in their debut weeks. Back to last week’s charts, Forza Horizon 3 scored a favourable spot yet again at number three, thanks to a hardware bundle.
