Although we were able to stay ahead of Metroid Dread and the new entry Back 4 Blood, Far Cry 6 is terribly underperforming in the UK sales charts.

Last week was a big week for the new release, but the top three UK physical sales charts saw Far Cry 6 down 66% and Metroid Dread down 63% in the second week. This is a high-profile release.

However, according to GamesIndustry.biz, digital sales of Far Cry 6 are down 50% compared to Far Cry 5 in 2018, indicating a significant drop in overall interest in new titles.

The best new entry of the week is No. 4 Back 4 Blood, but its sales are influenced by the fact that the game was available on the first day. Xbox game pass. Fellow new Demon Slayer-Kimetsu no Yaiba-Hinoka Micronicles missed the top 10 in 11th place, and Crysis Remaster Trilogy debuted in 24th place.
