Call of Duty Back On Top
There are only 3 charts left after this week until the end of the year and the week 49, 2016 chart sees the last of the big releases out of the traps.
Activision re-claim No1 with ‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’, perhaps with an eye on the Christmas No1, which they have held for the previous 2 years with ‘COD Black Ops III’ in 2015 and ‘COD Advance Warfare’ in 2014. EA take No’s 2 & 3 with ‘FIFA 17’ and ‘Battlefield 1’. The impressive launch of Square Enix’s ‘Final Fantasy XV’ last week at No2 sees the title dropping to No4 this week, but still ahead of the 2 big new releases this week. The first of the new releases is Microsoft and Capcom’s ‘Dead Rising 4’ for Xbox One debuting at No5. Previous iteration ‘Dead Rising 3’ was also only Xbox One, debuting 2 places lower at No7 in week 47,2013. Remaining at No6 for a third successive week is Ubisoft’s ‘Watch Dogs 2’, which means that Sony’s PS4 ‘The Last Guardian’ debuts at No7. Previous games in this series debuted at No15 (‘Ico’ for PS2, All Formats Chart week 12, 2002) and at No1 (‘Shadow of the Colossus’ for PS2, All Formats Chart week 7, 2006).
