Dishonored 2 launch sales down 38% on Dishonored

A Shade lower.

Dishonored 2 has failed to match the UK launch sales of its predecessor.

Bethesda's stylish stealth game sold 38 per cent fewer copies last week than the original Dishonored shifted back in 2012.

Some of this difference will be soaked up by the larger proportion of digital sales today (UK numbers company Chart-Track only counts physical copies). But only a small portion of it.

It's a shame, as Dishonored 2 looks a lot of fun - although we're still waiting for Eurogamer's review (due to Bethesda's new policy of holding back game code for media to review).

Other new entries into the chart this week are JRPG Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, in 33rd place, and Ubisoft VR game Eagle Flight, which lands in 39th.

Here's the full top 10 for your perusal:

  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  • FIFA 17
  • Battlefield 1
  • Dishonored 2
  • Skyrim Special Edition
  • Forza Horizon 3
  • Overwatch
  • Titanfall 2
  • Lego Dimensions
  • Star Wars Battlefront
