FIFA 17 Has Already Broken An Incredible Record

The latest iteration in the FIFA series, FIFA 17 released in the UK last week and has achieved the highest launch sales of any FIFA title, ever.

Sales of FIFA 17 were up 18 per cent year-on-year. High enough that it overtook FIFA 13 as the highest selling FIFA game of all time in launch week.

53 percent of copies were sold on PS4, whilst 41 percent of copies were sold on Xbox One. The Xbox One S had a bundle, which still wasn’t enough to get it over the line in software sales.

Forza Horizon 3 also had a stellar week coming in at second on the UK charts. It’s important to note that this does not include digital sales for either title.

Here’s the full breakdown: 

  1. FIFA 17
  2. Forza Horizon 3
  3. Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens
  4. BioShock: The Collection
  5. XCOM 2
  6. PES 2017
  7. Destiny: The Collection
  8. Rocket League
  9. NBA 2K17
  10. GTA5
