Destiny 2 is 2017’s Biggest Launch in the UK, But Has Yet to Pass Destiny 1

Who's surprised here?

Destiny 2 has topped the UK physical video games chart in its first week of launch. The previously crowned game, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, was booted to second place for the biggest launch of 2017. Despite this, Destiny 2's launch week sales are down 58% from the original Destiny.

According to GamesIndustry.bizDestiny 2 outsold Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Dishonored 2 and Watch Dogs 2 in their respective first weeks. The UK list also does not track digital sales, so the numbers are not entirely accurate, but are likely still representative overall. 

Below Destiny 2 and Uncharted sits Forza Horizon 3 in third place and Fallout 4 at fifth. Interestingly, thanks to GTA Online, Grand Theft Auto V still reigns at fourth place.
