Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ takes a third consecutive No1 for week 52, 2015 having claimed the Christmas No1 last week.
Sales climb by an impressive +40% over last week and for the 8 weeks on chart so far since launch this title has never been out of the Top 2 (50% of the time at No1). This week’s chart actually covers the run-up to Christmas and includes Boxing day, which explains why overall sales climb +13% units / +15% revenue over last week. And in fact there is still one more week to go for 2015, as this is a 53 week year. The Top 5 games all show impressive increases over last week, with EA’s ‘Star Wars Battlefront’ still at No2 (+16%), EA’s ‘FIFA 16’ steady at No3 (+20%) and Bethesda a non-mover at No4 with ‘Fallout 4’ (+13%). Rockstar/Take 2 climb 3 places to No5 with ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (+58%) and Square Enix rise 1 place to No6 with ‘Just Cause 3’ (+0%).
