Titanfall 2 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Despite being billed as one of the best shooter campaigns in years, Titanfall 2 has struggled to make an impact on the UK sales charts – even with the franchise making its PlayStation 4 debut. Early estimates show that the title struggled to sell half of what the original managed on the Xbox One alone, though the tracking period does account for less days.

Still, a big franchise like this won't be happy finishing fourth – especially when it's behind Battlefield 1, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and FIFA 17. Farming Simulator 17 ploughed its way into fifth position, as Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 debuted in seventh place. Elsewhere, newcomer World of Final Fantasy stacked its way up into eleventh position.

Good results for the niche releases, then, but we can't imagine EA will be satisfied with Titanfall 2 – especially seeing as the addition of the PS4 was supposed to grow the brand. Perhaps it shouldn't have sandwiched the shooter between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare; surely a March launch would have been a more appropriate fit?
