Assassin’s Creed 4 beats Battlefield 4 in week one sales

It’s time to take a look at the UK charts again as they tell a surprising story for the latest installment in the Battlefield franchise as it only manages to take the second spot, behind the newly released Assassin‘s Creed IV: Black Flag.

Interestingly enough both titles failed to match the first week sales of their counterparts, with perhaps some people holding out the next-gen versions of the game which are set to drop later this month.

Other new releases are SEGA’s Football Manager 2014 which debuts at sixth place, and seventh went to the latest entry in the WWE series with WWE 2K14 by 2K Sports.

The UK top 20 chart for the week ending November 2nd are as follows:

  1. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
  2. Battlefield 4
  3. FIFA 14
  4. Grand Theft Auto V
  5. Batman: Arkham Origins
