Red Dead Redemption 2 Sales

After having the most successful launch in series history, Kingdom Hearts III has been usurped by Red Dead Redemption II. This isn’t the first time this western sequel has made its way back to the top of the charts. In fact, this is the sixth time RDR2 has came in at number one since its initial release back in October 2018. Once again, this list only accounts for physical sales.

Meanwhile, FIFA 19 hit the crossbar and came in at the number two spot, dropping Kingdom Hearts III down to number three just a week after its launch. A few other major releases from 2019 were represented on the charts, including Resident Evil 2 and Nintendo’s Wii U port, New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe.

As usual, a few titles can’t seem to ever leave the charts for long, including Mario Kart 8: Deluxe and Spyro Reignited Trilogy. But with Jump Force, Far Cry New Dawn, and Metro Exodus all coming out on February 15, 2019, there will be plenty to shake up the charts when it comes to next week’s top ten.

Below are the current top ten games on the UK sales chart for the week ending on February 9, 2019.

  1. Red Dead Redemption 2
  2. FIFA 19
  3. Kingdom Hearts III
  4. Resident Evil 2
  5. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
  6. New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe
