CoD: Advanced Warfare outsells Ghosts in the UK

Activision's latest sold more in week one than Titanfall, Destiny and Wolfenstein combined

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare beat COD: Ghosts' week one sales in the UK, though it was only the fifth biggest launch in the series' history.

According to data from Gfk Chart-Track, Advanced Warfare outsold Ghosts by a "convincing" margin, and moved more units in its first week on sale than Titanfall, Destiny and Wolfenstein: The New Order combined over the equivalent period - 14 per cent more, to be precise.

The next highest new entry was Sports Interactive's Football Manager 2015, which nestled behind the long-time number one FIFA 15, now residing in second place thanks to the release of Call of Duty.
