Fallout 76 Sales See Big Drop in Comparison to Fallout 4 in the UK

Fallout 76 Sales See Big Drop in Comparison to Fallout 4 in the UK

Spyro burns past the competition.

Fallout 76 debuted at number three on the UK video game retail charts, but the numbers bely a competitive week for video game releases and the chart numbers don't paint the full picture of what's actually going on this week.

According to GamesIndustry.biz, despite making its debut at No.3 Fallout 76 made the most at retail. That's because the week's top-seller in the UK, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, is cheaper than Fallout 76 in retail stores. However, Fallout 76 is also down a whopping 82.4 percent compared to the sales of 2015's Fallout 4.

The week's other new releases Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee came in at the number four and six positions respectively in UK sales charts, but the split release structure confuses things a bit. If you tally the sales for both versions Pokemon Let's Go would have come in at first place.

Here's the full top 10 for the UK sales charts. We won't know the sales for the US until NPD releases its monthly sales data for November, which we'll get sometime in December.

  • 1. Spyro Reignited Trilogy
  • 2. Red Dead Redemption 2
  • 3. Fallout 76
  • 4. Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu
  • 5. FIFA 19
  • 6. Pokemon Let's Go Eevee
  • 7. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
  • 8. Fortnite: Deep Freeze Bundle
  • 9. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  • 10. Hitman 2
