Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Review 2

Picking up right where it left off last year, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare finished at #1 in the first week of 2017 in the UK, despite a 64% week-on-week drop. FIFA 17 also saw a big drop, but it remained in second, fending off Grand Theft Auto V, which rose from 4th to 3rd.

If Infinite Warfare takes home another #1, it will match the 2nd highest number of 1st place finishes for a Call of Duty title, tying Modern Warfare 2 with nine. Black Ops 3 holds the franchise record with 11.

Here’s the top 20 best-selling games through retail stores in the UK for the week ending January 7, 2017 according to GfK Chart-Track:

  1. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (down 64%)
  2. FIFA 17 (down 72%)
  3. Grand Theft Auto V (down 66%)
  4. Battlefield 1
  5. Forza Horizon 3 (down 5%)

  17. WWE 2K17

With no new competition this weekInfinite Warfare will likely repeat at #1. Things could change next week though, as both Gravity Rush 2 and Fate/Extella come out.
