FIFA 17 breaks series' launch week sales record

Forza Horizon 3 beats Horizon 2.

A small game named FIFA 17 released in the UK last week and earned the highest UK launch sales of any FIFA title, ever.

FIFA 17 sales were 18 per cent up on last year - and enough that it edged past previous high watermark FIFA 13.

53 per cent of copies were sold on PlayStation 4, while 41 per cent were sold on Xbox One - despite Xbox One S console bundles including the game packed in.

There was cause for Microsoft to celebrate, however - fellow new release Forza Horizon 3 beat Horizon 2, which launched for both Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Horizon 3 had the third highest launch week sales of any Forza/Forza Horizon game.

Last week's other launch, the console versions of XCOM 2, touched down in fifth place. Here's the full chart rundown:

  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
