As we move further into the games industry's busiest release period, it seems most new titles are going to struggle against an immovable top three. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, FIFA 19, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey have all held onto first, second, and third respectively. This is the second week at the top for Treyarch's multiplayer only shooter, which sees a week-on-week sales drop of just 39 per cent. Marvel's Spider-Man is also still performing well, and climbs back up to fourth place.

The best debut for a new release this week is for LEGO DC Super-Villains, coming in at number six, while SoulCalibur VI has to settle for eighth. Ubisoft's new toys to life game, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, crash lands into 14th, but it's possible things will pick up for the space exploration game with Christmas looming. It looks like this year's major hitters aren't going anywhere -- that is, until the mighty Red Dead Redemption 2 launches at the end of the week.
