State of Decay 2 debuts at No.2 on UK sales charts behind Detroit: Become Human

Microsoft and Sony both had exclusives releasing onto their platforms last week, and despite Detroit: Become Human launching a few days after State of Decay 2 did, it came out on top of UK sales charts according to GFK Chart-Track.

State of Decay 2 may have received mixed reviews for being unpolished and littered with bugs, but debuting at No.2 is still a respectable achievement when it was going up against a highly anticipated new IP. GFK Chart-Track only tracks physical sales, so these numbers do not take into consideration how well each game sold digitally. Microsoft has already stated that State of Decay 2 passed 1 million players just two days after its global release.

The other big release last week, Dark Souls: Remastered, entered the charts in third, behind State of Decay 2 and Detroit: Become Human. Sony’s acclaimed God of War also fell to No.5 behind FIFA 18.

The top 10 UK games for the week ending May 26 are as follows:

  1. Detroit: Become Human
  2. State of Decay 2
  3. Dark Souls: Remastered
  4. FIFA 18
  5. God of War
  6. Far Cry 5
  7. Overwatch Game of the Year Edition
  8. Destiny 2
  9. Fallout 4
  10. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
