Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare starts 2017 at No.1

Activision’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has claimed its eighth week at the top of the UK charts.

The shooter holds this position despite a 64 per cent dip in sales. If it manages another week at No.1, it will equal Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for the second most number of No.1s. GfK notes that the title is still a ways from matching the 11-week run that 2015’s Black Ops III managed.

Infinite Warfare was 2016’s last No.1 and was at the top of the charts for Christmas.

Second place once again goes to FIFA 17, which saw a 72 per cent dip in sales, while Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V rises one place to No.3.

Battlefield 1 drops one spot to No.4. Meanwhile, Forza Horizon 3 saw a seven-place rise shooting from No.12 to No.5, thanks to a retailer promotion, with sales dipping just five per cent.

Renewed stock helps Pokmon Sun sales shoot up 91 per cent, helping the title rise 27 places as Pokmon Moon sees a sales dip of 19 per cent.
