The Evil Within 2 is a tremendous disaster

The Evil Within 2 has quite good reviews and gets high ratings, but it sells terribly. Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is handling itself much better, but Warner cannot be happy with worse sales that its predecessor.

GfK data on video games' sales in UK looks terrible for Bethesda. The Evil Within 2 turned out to be a very good game (or, at least, better than the previous one), but it sells badly. After the first weekend Tango Gamework's game was sold in only 15,000 copies on all platforms. It's 75% worse than the predecessor. A little more than 10,000  were PS4 versions.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War managed to do better. The sales are, admittedly, worse that its predecessor's, but 18% is not THAT much. 80,000 in the first week is still a good start, though. What's more, albeit the marketing deal and money Microsoft spent on exclusive materials, the game is selling best on PS4 (the ratio is 61:39, comparing to the competition).

FIFA 18 remains the number one on the list, selling in roughly 116,000 copies on every platform. The newest EA Sports' game was the most popular of PS4, of course - ~74,000 people bought the version for Sony's console.

Top 10 best selling games in UK is as follows:

  1. FIFA 18
  2. Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
  3. The Evil Within 2
  4. Forza 7
  5. Forza Horizon 3
  6. Destiny 2
  7. GTA 5
  8. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  9. Lego Worlds
  10. Lego Ninjago Movie
