Far Cry 5 takes the top spot for second week running

Far Cry 5 retains its sales crown in a chart that hasn’t changed much in the last week. There’s a single change in position in the top five games, while the Top Ten is a lineup of the usual suspects.

Far Cry 5’s sales have dropped 69% for its second week, which is standard for a AAA release, especially one that set sales records as Far Cry 5 did at launch. Below that, FIFA 18 holds on to No.2 and Sea of Thieves floats at No.3. There were no new releases anywhere in the Top 40, and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds holds onto number 5 with fairly flat sales week on week.

Forza Motorsport’s price drop has seen it accelerate up the charts, moving from No.9 to No.4, and Call of Duty: WWII continues to hold onto its place on the charts after Easter promotions returned it to the Top Ten.

After the excitement of Easter retail deals, Mario Odyssey comes back at No.9 (from No.11) and Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy takes No.10 (from No.12) despite both games selling less copies than last week.

These figures, as ever, are the boxed charts and don’t include physical copies. Bearing that in mind, here’s the Top Ten for the week ending April 7. (Data courtesy of GfK/Ukie)
