Call of Duty: WWII claims its fifth successive UK No.1

Activision’s Call of Duty: WWII is aiming its sights on a possible Christmas No.1 after claiming the Top 40 UK top spot for the fifth week in a row.

That equals the 2017 record set down by fellow Activision release Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy, which also achieved five weeks on the trot at No.1. That game, incidentally, is back in the Top 10 after gaining six places.

The top five actually remain completely static this week, with FIFA 18 (No.2), Gran Turismo Sport (No.3), Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (No.4) and Assassin’s Creed Origins (No.5) rounding out the higher chart echelons.

Super Mario Odyssey recoups a couple of places to grab No.6, despite a drop in sales, while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sales surge and propel the game 11 places to No.8. The only new release in the Top 40 is Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which can only manage No.19 on its debut week, although this is better than the No.28 achieved by its predecessor Xenoblade Chronicles X.

The overall UK software market is down 24 per cent after Black Friday, however.

Here’s the Top 10 in full for the week ending December 2nd:

  1. Call of Duty: WWI (Activision)
  2. FIFA 18 (EA)
  3. Gran Turismo: Sport (Sony)
  4. Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (EA)
  5. Assassin’s Creed Origins (Ubisoft)
  6. Super Mario Odyssey (Nintendo)
  7. Forza Motorsport 7 (Microsoft)
  8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo)
  9. Grand Theft Auto V (Rockstar)
  10. Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy (Activision)
