Assassin's Creed: Syndicate Dethrone Fifa 16 for Top Spot in Latest UK Charts

Created on Monday, 26 October 2015

ACSyndicate Group01

Its launch fails to outperform previous title ‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’, which was denied top spot last year by the second week of ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’. It is the second major entry in the Assassin’s Creed series not to be developed by Ubisoft Montreal, that honour this time going to Ubisoft Quebec. ‘Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’ surpasses with ease the other non-Ubisoft Montreal developed title ‘Assassin’s Creed: Rogue’, but its launch falls short of surpassing any of the other major entries in the famous series.

Sales of ‘FIFA 16’ fall by 16% this week, but it still manages to secure 2nd place ahead of Activision Blizzard’s ‘Guitar Hero Live’, new at No3. It may be 5 years since the last Guitar Hero title Warriors of Rock, but the new game still manages a 24.3% increase on its predecessor’s launch.

‘Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection’ (-26%), makes way for the new releases by dropping 2 places to No4, while ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ sticks at No5 thanks to a 51% jump in sales. ‘Lego Dimensions’ (+12%) falls 2 places to No6, while ‘Destiny: The Taken King’ (-5%) slips by 4 places to No7. ‘Forza Motorsport 6’ (+11%) is still in demand at No8 ahead of ‘Lego Jurassic World’ (+74%) which was heavily promoted this week, a non-mover at No9.

 

‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’ (-3%) rounds off the Top 10, meaning Nintendo’s new 3DS title ‘The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes’ has to settle for No11. Thrown in with the new Assassin’s Creed Syndicate PS4 hardware bundles, ‘Watch Dogs’ (+430%) scampers back into the chart at No12, while ‘The Witcher III: Wild Hunt’ (+121%) also shoots up the chart, thanks to price promotions and a recent new expansion.

The only other new title to debut inside the Top 40 this week is Ubisoft’s ‘Just Dance 2016’ which gets the party started at No19.
