Although it’s managed to stay ahead of Metroid Dread and new entry Back 4 Blood, Far Cry 6 is badly underperforming in the UK sales charts.

With the previous week being a big one for new releases the top three of the UK physical sales chart now finds itself frozen in place, with Far Cry 6 down 66% in its second week and Metroid Dread down 63% – which are typical figures for high profile releases.

However, according to GamesIndustry.biz, digital sales for Far Cry 6 are now down 50% on 2018’s Far Cry 5, suggesting the new title has seen a significant drop in overall interest.

The highest new entry of the week is Back 4 Blood at number four, although its sales are affected by the fact the game was available day one on Xbox Game Pass. Fellow new entry Demon Slayer -Kimetsu No Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles just missed out on the top 10 at number 11, while Crysis Remastered Trilogy debuted at number 24.
