A strong week for Skyrim Special Edition couldn't shift it
Battlefield 1 has brushed off opposition and a 39% decrease in sales to maintain a second week at the top spot in the charts, with debuts from Skyrim Special Edition and Titanfall 2 unable to topple it.
Battlefield 3 and 4 saw second week declines of 54% upon their respective releases, so this drop of 39% is rather impressive for Battlefield 1. Skyrim Special Edition, despite not beating the 2011 version's launch week, is still comfortable in second place.
EA has three titles in the top four, however, with FIFA 17 in third and Titanfall 2 in fourth, the latter of which still being an impressive entry despite not climbing to the heights of the original, which got the top spots in the charts back in 2014. Here is the top 10 in full:
1. Battlefield 1 / EA Games
2. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition / Bethesda Softworks
3. FIFA 17 / EA Sports
4. Titanfall 2 / EA Games
5. Farming Simulator 17 / Focus Home Interactive
6. Mafia III / 2K Games
7. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 / Bandai Namco Entertainment
8. Gears of War 4 / Microsoft
9. Forza Horizon 3 / Microsoft
10. World of Final Fantasy / Square Enix

Battlefield 1 more popular on consoles than PC
Battlefield started as a PC only game, and that's where the fans have mainly been since then. Starting with Battlefield 4, that started to change, as the PC version of the game was in such a bad shape at launch, and now it seems like this trend has continued, if Battlefield 1 is anything to go by.
The data collected by BF1stats.com revealed that during the last 24 hours there have been 145,384 players on PC, compared to 328,525 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at 241,078. That means only 25% of the players during this time were found on the format that started it all, and this is likely representative of the actual sales.
