UK Charts: Rage 2 Ends Days Gone’s 3 Week Run

Bethesda’s Rage 2 has topped the UK boxed charts, ending Days Gone’s three week run at the top. Rage 2 however sold just a quarter of what the first game did and whilst digital game sales have risen drastically since 2011 it still doesn’t look promising. Digital sales are estimated to account for up to 50% of console software sales but that would still mean that the game only managed to sell around half as much as the first game. Rage 2 sold best on PS4 with around 57% of all sales coming on the platform, Xbox One accounted for 38% and 5% of physical sales were on PC.

The only other new entries to make the list is Focus Home Interactive’s A Plague’s Tale: Innocence which debuted in ninth place, due to it being another slow week for physical sales in the UK, and Sniper Elite V2 Remastered which opened in thirteenth place. Days Gone saw a sales drop of 38% and Mortal Kombat 11 saw a drop of 47%, concerning given that the Switch version only came out last week.

Here’s the top 10:

  1. Rage 2
  2. Days Gone
  3. FIFA 19
  4. Mortal Kombat 11
  5. Red Dead Redemption II
  6. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  7. Grand Theft Auto V
  8. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2
  9. A Plague’s Tale: Innocence
  10. New Super Mario Bros U
