UK Charts: Call of Duty: Black Ops III Unsurprisingly takes the Top Spot

Call of Duty: Black Ops III, like all previous Call of Duty titles, has easily captured the top spot in the UK. Halo 5: Guardians, the previous top spot holder, has to settle for fourth place in its second week.

This is the first Call of Duty game since 2009 to launch on a Friday, giving Black Ops III a five-day disadvantage compared to previous titles. As such, Black Ops III is the seventh best-selling title in the franchise in terms of week-one sales. Current-gen sales made up 91% of all Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s sales, a huge leap from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s 68%.

EA and Ghost Games’ Need for Speed reboot was the only other new entry to Top 20. The racer enters the charts in third place.
