FIFA 20 and Modern Warfare remain in high standing
The UK Charts saw three new entries this week, with Sega’s Yakuza Remastered Collection smashing into the Top Ten at number two, while Sony’s excellent game-creator Dreams settled at number eight. THQ Nordic’s Darksiders Genesis finally arrived on consoles and also made a modest impact, landing at number 11.
None of these releases had a strong enough launch to unsettle Electronic Arts’ FIFA 20 or Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare however, both of which continue their dominance of the charts. This has become de riguer for most January/February seasons, with the annual football/shooter releases often taking hold when not challenged by popular franchise titles (such as Resident Evil 2 and Kingdom Hearts III last year, or Monster Hunter: World in 2018).
The quiet continued success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order should also be noted. While the game has fallen out of vogue in terms of chatter and word of mouth, EA’s intergalactic adventure has maintained a lofty presence in the Top Ten since its initial release way back in November.
