Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 remains at the top | UK Boxed Charts

FIFA 23 takes No.2 for the second week running

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 remained strong at the top of the UK physical charts for its second week on shelves.

Sales for Activision's titles were only down 42% week-on-week, which is an excellent performance for a second week. This year's Call of Duty saw its physical launch sales in the UK up over 40% compared to 2021's Vanguard.

EA's FIFA 23 also continued to perform really well, securing No.2 for the second week running with a slight 12% dip in sales.

GfK noted sale increases across the board for Nintendo titles last week, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe charting at No.3 following a 35% growth, Nintendo Switch Sports taking No.4 thanks to a 54% rise, and Splatoon 3 climbing to No.5 after a 19% increase in sales, among others.

It was a quiet week overall, but three new titles entered the Top 40: Bratz: Flaunt Your Fashion from Outright Games at No.15, Maximum Games' WRC Generations at No.22 and Square Enix's Harvestella at No.25.

Here is the GfK UK Boxed Top Ten for the week ending November 5:
