Rage 2 Ends Days Gone's Reign at the Top of the UK Charts - SalesCraig Snow , posted on 20 May 2019 / 1,832 Views
Despite its incredibly lacklustre critical reception, Rage 2 managed to top the UK charts in week 20. The new release dethrones PlayStation 4 exclusive Days Gone (down 38% this week), which had topped the charts for three weeks running.
However, Rage 2 managed to sell only a quarter of that managed by the original Rage at retail according to GamesIndustry. In terms of platform split, the PS4 accounted for 57% of sales, the Xbox One for 38%, and physical PC copies 5%.
The other new releases this week were A Plague Tale: Innocence, which managed to net 9th position, and Sniper Elite V2 Remastered, which landed just outside the top 10 in 13th position.
The top 10 as a whole was remarkably stable, outside of the two major new releases, although sales across the board were down 30-50% week-on-week.
Here are the top 10 best-selling titles (combined sales):
- Rage 2
- Days Gone
- FIFA 19
- Mortal Kombat 11
- Red Dead Redemption 2
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Tom Clancy's The Division 2
- A Plague Tale: Innocence
- New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
