Bolstered by the start of the online beta, Red Dead Redemption 2 claims the top spot as players clamour to try it out. Other October releases that are still doing well include Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 in 2nd, Forza Horizon 4 in 4th, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey in 11th.

Despite recent negative publicity, Fallout 76 is the highest charting November release in 5th. It's accompanied by Battlefield V in 6th, while Spyro Reignited Trilogy just holds on to a spot in the chart at 17th.

Older titles continue to dominate the charts, though. The ubiquitous Fortnite appears in 3rd, while Destiny 2 makes its debut in 7th, likely due to the start of the Season of the Forge and its new content.

Not only does the chart show surprising entries, it also has some surprising omissions. None of last week's new releases make an appearance on the chart, including Darksiders III. With sales rumoured to be significantly lower than both Darksiders and Darksiders II, it doesn't seem likely to make the chart anytime soon either. Will any of this week's releases make the cut?

From next week, we'll be comparing the games' performances to those of the previous week, as we'll be displaying last week's position and each game's movement. Don't forget to tune in to see what next week brings, and in the meantime, you can subscribe to get alerts for all future Xbox Gameplay Charts here.
