Red Dead Redemption 2 rises to the top of the gaming chart

RDR2 is the second fastest-selling game of the year so far

Breaking news! Who could have anticipated this? Oh, just about everyone in the entire world... That's right, GfK Chart-Track has just dropped the bombshell that Red Dead Redemption 2 was the best-selling retail game in the UK last week!

This means that Rockstar's western epic bucks the general trend of sequels selling fewer physical copies than their predecessors. The Adventures of Arthur Morgan sold more than twice as many physical copies as Red Dead Redemption managed eight years ago.

However, it is not the fastest selling game in the UK this year. That honour belongs to FIFA 19. That said, it is the third fastest selling non-FIFA game in this console generation, only beaten by Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which had the advantage of also being released on PC.

Again, these are just physical copies. The sales numbers are going to be even more impressive when the digital numbers are included. Even so, one of the most anticipated games ever has crushed everything in its path on the retail front, as you can see below:

  1. Red Dead Redemption 2 / Take Two
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 / Activision
  3. FIFA 19 / EA
  4. Forza Horizon 4 / Microsoft
  5. Assassin's Creed Odyssey / Ubisoft
  6. Spider-Man / Sony
  7. Lego DC Super-Villains / Warner
  8. Super Mario Party / Nintendo
  9. Shadow of the Tomb Raider / Square Enix
  10. Crash Bandicoot: Nsane Trilogy / Activision
