The UK physical sales chart for the week ending on October 7th reveals some exciting movements. Assassin’s Creed Mirage had a strong start, coming in second place right out of the gate. However, it couldn’t dethrone EA Sports FC 24, which remains in the top spot despite a significant drop in sales (via GamesIndustry).
Even with a 48% decline in sales, EA Sports FC 24 holds its number one position firmly. Given its status as the second biggest physical release in the UK this year, with 11.3 million users since launch, its strong standing is expected.
Making its debut, Assassin’s Creed Mirage entered the charts at an impressive second place. Meanwhile, Detective Pikachu Returns, another new entry this week, landed in third place despite getting mixed reviews.
