In the week before Christmas “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla” took the top spot in the British charts. The game’s sales were up 66 percent on a weekly basis thanks to some discounts.
Black Ops not a Christmas winner for the first time
The Ubisoft blockbuster hit “Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War,” which took second place last week. According to Gamesindustry, it is the first time that the “Black Ops” series failed to become Christmas number 1.
For the previous week’s winner “Cyberpunk 2077” it was two places down. RPG sales slumped 80 percent, which isn’t exceptional for the second week after a game launched. “The Last of Us: Part 2” and “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla” also had similar post-launch slumps. Nevertheless, the negative reports of the past few days in the case of “Cyberpunk 2077” should have had a certain influence.
The new game from CD Projekt was able to hold its own against “FIFA 21”, which had to be content with fourth place despite a sales increase of 40 percent. Animal Crossing: New Horizons was number five, an eleven percent decline, making it the first drop in sales in over a month.
