Just Cause 4 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Just Cause 4’s retail sales got off to the slowest start in the series thus far, even failing to improve upon its 2006 predecessor. That’s according to the latest UK sales chart, which comes with the big fat caveat that digital data isn’t included. GamesIndustry.biz hypothesises that with outlets like the PlayStation Store added it may have improved upon the PlayStation 2 entry’s tally, but this clearly isn’t a particularly great result.

With most of the major launches now out, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate dominated the best-sellers list as many would have already anticipated. Red Dead Redemption 2 stuck around in second, while FIFA 19 dropped down into third position. The remainder of the top ten was occupied by familiar faces, like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, and the boxed Fortnite: Deep Freeze Bundle. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds enjoyed a 321 per cent sales increase on the back of the PlayStation 4 version’s debut, while Darksiders III disappeared entirely.
