Assassin’s Creed: Unity outsells Black Flag, charts at No.2

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare remains the UK no.1, with Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity entering the UKIE GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top 40 in second place.

Unity did manage to improve upon the week one sales of last year’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, however, which is pretty impressive seeing as Black Flag was a cross-generation title and Unity is a next-gen and PC only release.

Current-gen title Rogue, meanwhile, debuts in sixth place. Were the sales of both Creed games combined it would have claimed no.1.

As for Unity, 52 per cent of sales were on PS4 and 46 per cent on Xbox One, with PC claiming just two per cent – with those numbers of course omitting all of the digital sales.

Microsoft’s Halo: The Master Chief Collection manages third place in its first week, becoming the biggest launch for a first party Xbox One title. LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham debuts in fifth and Konami’s PES 2015 in eighth. Blizzard’s World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor enters the charts at no.9

Seventh place Minecraft: PlayStation Edition sees a decent jump in sales, too, climbing 79 per cent thanks to the release of the Vita version – which, incidentally, beat the week one numbers of both the PS3 and PS4 releases, becoming the third biggest ever Vita debut.

Here’s the Top Ten in full for the week ending November 15th:
1. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Activision)
2. Assassin’s Creed: Unity (Ubisoft)
3. Halo: The Master Chief Collection (Microsoft)
4. FIFA 15 (EA)
5. LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (Warner)
6. Assassin’s Creed: Rogue (Ubisoft)
7. Minecraft: PlayStation Edition (Sony)
8. PES 2015 (Konami)
