Red Dead Redemption 2’s strong sales appear to have continued, at least in the UK, with Rockstar’s open-world game finishing at No.1 for the third consecutive week, according to sales monitor Chart-Track. In fact, the entire top five is unchanged: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beats FIFA 19 to No.2 by just a few hundred units, while Forza Horizon 4 and Spider-Man PS4 continue to chart well.

This week’s solitary new entry is 2K’s Carnival Games, which debuts at No.20. Red Dead’s strong showing this week is no surprise, given its launch week sales. Rockstar stated earlier this month that the game boasted the “single biggest opening weekend in the history of entertainment,” with sales surpassing $725 million that weekend.
