Last week we saw the launch of three games highly anticipated by the public. The Callisto Protocol, Marvels Midnight Suns and Need for Speed: Unbound were available on the same day. However, it seems that only one of these managed to debut with the right foot in sales.
According to Gamesindustry.biz, only The Callisto Protocol managed to debut in the top 10 of the best-selling games last week in the United Kingdom, and did so in sixth place. For its part, Need for Speed: Bound had a lousy start, since it was in 17th place, with 64 % less in sales than Need for Speed Heat, the previous delivery of the franchise.
For its part, Marvels Midnight Suns debuted in the 26th position. However, it is important to mention that in the United Kingdom, similar to Japan, only physical sales are taken into account, so it was generated on PC and in digital stores Of each console, they were not taken into account this time. This is the top 10:
-Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
-God of War: Ragnarök
-Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
-The Callisto Protocol
-Nintendo Switch Sports
-Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Considering that strong launches of the year have come to an end, it is very likely that the list of the best-selling games, not only in the United Kingdom, but throughout the world, looks very similar in the top positions.
