I’m glad to see Gears do well, don’t think it will stay that high for long but 4 is a good starting position. I think Borderlands 3 will be just outside the top 10.

Glad to see Gears so popular :) Very surprised to say the least I hope they sort out the obvious issues it has so it has a better chance of maintaining it's high standing. The Coalition better be working 24hrs on those servers, I'd be bitterly disappointed if they're not!

I think BL3 will be about 20ish because it's not on GP.

I think Borderlands will be in the top 5. With Gears having several issues, I wouldn't even be surprised to see Borderlands come in ahead of Gears. We'll see.

Oh look NBA 2k20 made it in the top 20 after all the fake outrage over gambling.

BL3 has had more hype than anything in a while, and has loads of dedicated fans, but many other players do not show much interest in the Borderlands "style". Top 15 maybe.

I wonder if any of these new releases now and coming in the next few weeks can knock off Fortnite for a little bit

How is this "Fortnite" still on top? I understand that some games are able to keep consumer interest, and more importantly empty their wallet, but as far as I know the Battle Royale bandwagon has been falling off for a while. I don't see many of my friends playing it as much as they used to (except the kiddies of course).
On an unrelated note, why do I keep hearing that "Call Of Duty is dead?" People say that the games have been getting worse yet the franchise is good enough to stay in the top 40 for quite a while. It may not have as large a player base, say, Black Ops 2, but its far from dead. I could go on about what makes a game dead, but I will leave it here.

Even when there’s an offer of $2 for two months Game Pass, Gears 5 only managed fourth? Ha ha ha!

Let’s see how it goes after today’s/tomorrow’s “official release”, as some are claiming four days of early access doesn’t mean the game has to be finished and playable. /facepalm

I mean do you expect anything to beat Fortnite and Minecraft? Minecraft has been a staple of the gaming world for a decade now and Fortnite....

Though it doesn't have the staying power like GTA or Siege and will probably fall down to the likes of P20-25 before the end of the year

I’m always checking these to see which game finally knocks Fortnite off its perch. The quality of servers just aren’t there anymore and I find the challenges glitched quite often.

Maybe children don't like it that much? roll
They are clearly the majority of the playerbase.

Well they are switching over to a new engine for the new game so maybe that made some people return to the franchise and pratice on some of the older games so they are back in the flow when the new one comes out.
I'm also wondering where you have heard the COD franchise is dead considering I hopped off the bus a few years back but from what I can tell at my local videogame store it still sells really well each year a new one comes out
