It's been a crazy week or two in video game land, hasn't it? Ubisoft pushed back its big upcoming games, The Last of Us: Part II was delayed, and WWE 2K20 became a social media laughing stock due to numerous bugs doing the rounds. Speaking of which, the messy wrestling game seems to have done okay regardless of its state, landing in third place on the UK chart. Whether the infamous glitches had any impact on sales is hard to say; according to GamesIndustry, physical sales are down 31 per cent compared to the last game, but this is a trend we're seeing across all franchises.
Anyway, topping the chart as expected is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, finally putting an end to the reign of FIFA 20. More new releases fill out the top five -- The Outer Worlds debuts in fourth place, which is a good result for a new property, while MediEvil rounds things off in fifth.
This fresh batch of new titles means some mainstays have been pushed out of the top 10. The likes of Borderlands 3 and Grand Theft Auto V are out, and Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville take their places near the end of the bestsellers.
