Football Manager 2020 releases at No. 1 in EMEAA charts

Football Manager beats out Q4 big-hitters, but otherwise charts remain steady as holiday season looms

Football Manager 2020 is enjoying a strong launch week in the charts, beating out all the latest big releases to arrive in the top spot.

It has not been a week of surprises in the EMEAA combined digital and retail charts, with all the Q4 2019 big-hitters making an appearance as we enter the holiday season.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order holds fast at No. 2 in its second week, while Call of Duty hops a spot into No. 3.

FIFA continues its reign as an ever present force in the charts at No. 5, nearly two months after release.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield still hold a firm grasp despite Nintendo's refusal to publish digital sales figures, placing at No. 5 and No. 6 respectively,

Grand Theft Auto V, having taken up permanent residence in the top ten, is up three spots to No. 7.

Meanwhile Luigi's Mansion 3 and Need for Speed: Heat continue to enjoy solid success, placing at No. 8 and No. 9.

While not a permanent fixture of the top ten, Rainbow Six Siege does return with remarkable frequency, and this week finds itself at No. 10, having climbed from No. 26.
