Injustice 2 continues to be a big hit with United Kingdom-based gamers in its second week of release.
Even though the game saw about a 52 percent drop-off from its audience during the initial week, Injustice 2 still sold fundamentally well, continuing to hold onto the first place spot in UK sales ending the week of May 27, 2017. Of course, it's easy to see why, with its massive roster of characters, its intriguing single player storyline and its multiplayer offerings.
Meanwhile, Blizzard had a nice little comeback for Overwatch this week, scoring a second place spot upon launching a new Anniversary Event for the game and launching a new Game of the Year Edition. Specific numbers indicate that the game saw a 281 percent leap in sales, mainly behind the new promotions and recent discounts offered by both Blizzard and retailers.
But not every game saw huge success in the week. Farpoint, Sony's virtual reality-based shooter, debuted in second place last week after arriving on the market. This week, though, it dropped dramatically down to 19th place – a startling 79 percent decrease in business. The only other game that saw a big drop in sales was Bethesda's Prey, though it only dropped about nine percent from the previous week.
Meanwhile, Nintendo is thriving all over. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe saw a 16 percent increase; The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild rose a wild 53 percent over the previous week; and Ultra Street Fighter II had a suitable debut in tenth place, with only one day of sales counting in the previous week.
Check out the top ten list below:
One. Injustice 2
- Grand Theft Auto V
- FIFA 17
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands
- Dishonored 2

Things are sure to get interesting over the next few weeks, especially with the introduction of long-awaited hits like Tekken 7 and DiRT 4, amongst other big blockbusters to come. Let's see if Injustice 2 can hang onto that first place spot a little while longer.
