First off is Overwatch, Blizzard Entertainment’s hero-based team shooter that is continuing to do well and shows no sign of stopping anytime soon. The popular game has shown a 24% increase in sales over the past week which once again secured its position at the top of the charts. 

Sitting comfortably in the second place on the charts is Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. While the game has dropped down from the first place to the second place in last week, with the game seeing a dip in sales to the tune of 72 percent, Eidos Montreal’s Cyberpunk stealth game is still doing rather well in the charts, although the initial wave of sales seems to be over. 

In third place is World of Warcraft: Legion, the 6th expansion for the popular MMO that refuses to lie down even after subscriber numbers withered. According to MMO Champion fan and press reaction to the expansion has been positive, and Blizzard are reporting that concurrent user numbers are higher than it has been in years. While boxed versions of the new expansion are still eclipsed by boxed sales of Warlords of DraenorLegion is still the highest-charting PC-exclusive game to be released this year to date. 

Another interesting thing to note is that No Man’s Sky in 7th place, with the game still performing well despite the recent controversy surrounding the game and its release. Uncharted 4: a Thief’s End is also doing well, occupying the 5th place in the charts.
