UK Charts 16/02/19 – Far Cry: New Dawn is number one, Crackdown 3 doesn’t make the top ten

 

Far Cry: New Dawn is your new number one and although that seems like a win for Ubisoft sales for the game are 86.5% less than that of Far Cry 5, although the game in second place doesn’t have that problem.

Metro Exodus takes that position with sales almost 50% higher than the previous game in the series, an impressive feat considering many people now prefer digital downloads. Jump Force lands at a respectable fourth place and Crackdown 3 manages… hmm, hang on.. scroll down.. down.. down.. oh there it is, number thirteen. The game has just 10% of the sales of Crackdown 2 but is part of Microsoft’s Game Pass so I expect that’s the angle Microsoft will spin.

Here’s the top twenty.

  1. Started Far Cry ND. I have to say, I’m enjoying it more than I did FC5. The main antagonists aren’t as cool as 5 but the gameplay is definitely a bit more relaxed and enjoyable.

  2. They release the game a week before pay day, no wonder the sales are worse than primal
