Call of Duty: Vanguard repeats as best-selling game in the last week in physical format and in the United Kingdom. The shooter Activision is down 47% compared to the first week, which is not a very marked decrease compared to other launches, but initial sales were not as high as expected; in fact, they are the worst in the saga of the last 14 years.
There are several novelties in the last few days that sneak into the sales list. Forza Horizon 5 debuts in fourth position, with physical sales that are 80% less than those of Forza Horizon 4 of 2018, although this does not take into account digital sales and of course more and more players are trying it on Xbox Game Pass; digital sales will be known at the end of the week.
In sixth position we find Jurassic World: Evolution 2 the Frontier, 37% less than its 2018 predecessor, but again this does not take into account the advancement of digital distribution. 34% of sales are for PlayStation 5, 33% for PlayStation 4 and the same percentage for Xbox.
Another launch is Shin Megami Tensei V of Nintendo Switch that enters ninth position, a piece of information that is better than other JRPGs -a niche genre in the country-; for example, it is 60% more than Bravely Default II or 43% more than Monster Hunter Stories 2, both for the Nintendo console, or 23% more than Tales of Arise from PlayStation and Xbox.
Football Manager 2022 Sega comes in at number 12 – 25% less than its predecessor – but It is known that the majority of sales will be made on Steam. Finally Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl -launched on November 5- opens at number 23, with 56% sales on Nintendo Switch, 21% on PS5, 14% on PS4 and 10% on Xbox.
