Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Review 4

After capturing the Christmas #1 in the previous weekCall of Duty: Infinite Warfare was back on top in the second to last week of 2016, and GfK Chart-Track expects it to finish the year in first, much like Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3 did in 2014 and 2015, respectively. However, Games Industry notes that Infinite Warfare is trending 45% behind Black Ops 3.

Although Watch Dogs 2 is lagging behind Watch Dogs in sales, it’s actually trending 100,000 units ahead of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which is partly due to a price drop this month. Steep, meanwhile, is also benefiting from a lower price, rising in sales yet again. However, the action sports game has yet to crack the 100,000 sales mark in the UK.

Here’s the top 20 best-selling games through retail stores in the UK for the week ending December 24, 2016, according to GfK Chart-Track:

  1. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (up 37%)
  2. FIFA 17
  3. Battlefield 1
  4. Watch Dogs 2
  5. Grand Theft Auto V
  6. Mafia III
  7. Steep (up 60%)
  8. Final Fantasy XV
  9. Skyrim Special Edition
  10. Forza Horizon 3
  11. Dishonored 2
