Football Manager 2016 shifted 110,000 digital and physical units in its first week on sale in the UK.
This means the game could have been No.3 in the Chart-Track All Formats charts had digital sales been included. 82 per cent of the game’s sales were made digitally.
Based on just its physical sales, Football Manager 2016 debuted in seventh place in the UK All Formats charts.
Football Manager 2016, developed by Sports Interactive, launched on PC on Friday, November 13th.
It was a record breaking day one for the Football Manager franchise in terms of global sales and this has been supported by some great week one numbers in the UK,” Sports Interactive studio boss Miles Jacobson said.
We’re delighted with the sales and the smooth launch of the game, not just in the UK, but internationally. We wanted to ensure that the release this year had some revolution with the two new game modes, lots of evolution with the improvements made to the main game mode, and was our most polished day one release to date. All of which has been achieved.”
