FIFA 22 celebrates four weeks at UK number one – Games charts 23 October


Four weeks and counting… (pic: EA)

The highest new entry of the week is The Dark Pictures Anthology: House Of Ashes but it’s FIFA 22 which is dominating sales once again.

With the number of new releases taking a dip last week FIFA 22 has found it easy to hang on to the UK number one spot for the fourth consecutive week, with a small drop in sales of just 12%.

The only new entry was House Of Ashes, which sold 27% less than last year’s The Dark Pictures Anthology. That’s a small enough drop that it may account for the natural increase in digital sales and could even indicate that House Of Ashes sold more than last year’s title.

A number of other Halloween themed games saw an increase in sales last week, including Resident Evil Village and the new Nintendo Switch version of Dying Light: Platinum Edition at number 32. The second highest new entry of the week though was the decidedly less terrifying My Friend Peppa Pig at number 26.
