Call of Duty: Black Ops II Dominates the UK Sales Chart

November 19, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

Treyarch’s highly anticipated first-person shooter launched last week to much success in the UK, outselling every other game on the market.

While there was virtually no shred of doubt in anyone’s mind that Black Ops II would be the best selling game of last week, Assassin’s Creed III has managed to slip all the way to fourth place, behind Halo 4 and FIFA 13.

Here’s the top ten list based on last week’s sales:

1. Call of Duty: Black Ops II
2. Halo 4
3. FIFA 13
4. Assassin’s Creed
5. Skylanders Giants
6. Need for Speed: Most Wanted
7. Just Dance 4
8. Borderlands 2
9. The Sims 3: Seasons
10. Football Manager 2013

With Hitman: Absolution launching for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC this week, do you think IO Interactive’s stealth action title will be able to dethrone Activision’s juggernaut, or will Black Ops II sit happily in the top slot for the rest of 2012? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
