UK Sales Chart: Advanced Warfare Debuts in 1st, is Only the 5th Biggest Call of Duty Launch Ever

November 10, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Putting an end to FIFA 15’s stay at the top, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare easily finished in first place, besting the week 1 sales posted by Call of Duty: Ghosts. However, Advanced Warfare is just the 5th biggest Call of Duty launch in the series overall.

Looking at Titanfall, Destiny, and Wolfenstein – three other big first-person shooters from this year – Advanced Warfare’s week 1 sales beat all three of them combined by almost 14%.

It was a fairly slow week everywhere else with Call of Duty getting the most attention, though retailer promotions did help push Alien: Isolation all the way up to 4th.

Here’s the top 20 selling retail games in the UK for the week ending November 8, 2014, according to GfK Chart-track:

  1. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
  2. FIFA 15 (down 20%)
  3. Football Manager 15
  4. Alien: Isolation (up 120%)
  5. Destiny (up 3%)
  6. Minecraft: PlayStation Edition (down 41%)
  7. Skylanders Trap Team (up 6%)
  8. Sunset Overdrive (down 61%)
  9. The Evil Within (down 44%)
  10. Minecraft: Xbox Edition (up 9%)
  11. Forza Horizon 2
  12. Disney Infinity 2.0 (up 10%)
  13. WWE 2K15
  14. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
  15. Watch Dogs
  16. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
  17. Super Smash Bros
  18. LEGO The Hobbit
  19. Tomodachi Life
  20. Frozen: Olaf’s Quest

Do you think Assassin’s Creed Unity will finish in first place? Do you think Rogue will debut in the top 10?
