UK Sales Chart: FIFA 18 Begins Its Reign Atop the Chart

The UK sales chart is now available, and non-surprisingly Destiny 2 has been dethroned from its top spot. The culprit? None other than FIFA 18, which will likely be a sales behemoth for the months to come. While virtual football took the top spot, Destiny 2 still sold well as it claimed the number two spot. Rounding out the top five were an impressive long tail for Forza Horizon 3, NBA 2K18 continued to sell well at number four, and Grand Theft Auto V is somehow still selling amazingly at number five.

Here’s the top 20 best-selling games through retail stores in the UK for the week ending September 30, 2017, according to GfK Chart-Track (new releases are in bold):

  1. FIFA 18
  2. Destiny 2
  3. Forza Horizon 3
  4. NBA 2K18
  5. Grand Theft Auto V

For more on the highest selling debut of the week, check out our FIFA 18 review. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say:

FIFA 18 is an incredible football game that has something to offer every gamer. There’s a very human and relatable story to be found in Alex Hunter’s latest chapter, and those who just want polished gameplay will find just that in its many different modes. In addition, anyone who is a fan of the beautiful game will want to check out this year’s installment.
