Thanks to a quiet release schedule, the excellent Hitman 3 made a strong debut in last week’s UK boxed games chart. It went straight to number one, but this week, it’s slipped to number 11.
This is due to a pretty steep sales decline, which is a very normal pattern for new releases — and remember, this doesn’t include digital sales, where the game has done extremely well.
Games such as Grand Theft Auto V and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, meanwhile, are on the rise, up to fourth and third respectively. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is still performing well in fifth, with the vast majority of sales going to PS5 copies. Finally, FIFA 21 is hanging in there at number 10.
Here’s the latest top 10 in full.
