Deathloop is Arkane’s lowest seller yet in UK top 10 – Games charts 18 September


Being number one is still worth bragging about (pic: Bethesda)

It might have gone straight to number one but the sales for Arkane Studios’ Deathloop are lower than both Dishonored and Prey.

Deathloop is the new UK number one, but it’s recorded the lowest sales figures for an Arkane Studios title so far. Sales were close enough to Prey that, if the increase in digital sales are taken into account, it probably did outsell that overall, but it’s clearly not been a breakout hit.

Given how low sales in general have been over the last few weeks it doesn’t take much to chart in the top 10 at the moment, with new stock of the PlayStation 5 console meaning that sales of Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Ghost Of Tsushima Director’s Cut were responsible for the only other real movement.

The one other new entry of the week was Cruis’n Blast at number 37, a low profile Nintendo Switch exclusive that seems lucky to have got a physical release in the first place.
