Star Wars Battlefront II Misses Top Spot in UK Sales, Physical Copies Down 60%

Following its release on November 17, Star Wars Battlefront II has entered the UK sales chart in second place. Call of Duty: WWII still sits in first place, for the third week in a row.

Here’s the UK Top 10 for the week ending November 18:

1 – Call of Duty: WWII (Activision)

2 – Star Wars Battlefront 2 (EA)

3 – FIFA 18 (EA)

4 – Pokemon Ultra Sun (Nintendo)

5 – Pokemon Ultra Moon (Nintendo)

6 – Assassin’s Creed Origins (Ubisoft)

7 – The Sims 4 (EA)

8 – LA Noire Remastered (Take-Two)

9 – Super Mario Odyssey (Nintendo)

10 – LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 (Warner Bros)

It’s worth noting that these are physical sales figures, and it’s possible that Star Wars Battlefront II achieved better on the digital storefronts. With that said, I can’t help but wonder if the recent controversies surrounding the game caused reduced sales.

Continuing our focus on physical sales figures, Battlefront II launched with 60 percent fewer sales than Battlefront (2015).

Of course, what with Battlefront II‘s standard version releasing on the Friday, the game didn’t have much time to bring in sales for that week.

What do you make of these Battlefront II sales figures?
