The much anticipated RAGE 2 premiered just a few days ago, and the open-world shooter from Bethesda promised to be happy to reach big sales numbers. However, if you look at your data in the UK, the truth is that the thing seems somewhat worrying.
Last week RAGE 2 was the best seller in its premiere week, something that seems logical for a game of its characteristics in a few months as little populated as we live, however this time has fallen to fourth place.
That would not necessarily be worrisome if it was not because there are still no premieres of great profile, in fact the leadership is now held by Team Sonic Racing and others like Everybody’s Golf VR have not managed to enter even the top 20. But why of the radical fall that has occurred in just seven days. In its second week in the British market, Avalanche’s action and open world game have lost 73% of sales compared to the previous week. It is usual to have strong drops after the start week, but this is notoriously important.
The downs, however, have been widespread in the first positions. Also falling in sales Days Gone or FIFA 19, although in much smaller numbers that allow them to be in the second and third positions. However, there are also some climbs with a Metro Exodus that continues to climb, rose last week by 159% and this is 49%, or just Cause 4 that has been climbing for three weeks.
