Yes, Red Dead Redemption 2 kept the top spot by a decisive margin. Fortnite climbs up a place to take #2, likely helped along by the start of Season 7, while Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 manages to hold on at #3.

At the bottom of the table, Xbox Game Pass has quite an impact, making sure both Ashen and Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden enter into the chart in their release week. It's also likely to be responsible for Mortal Kombat X climbing a large number of places to make its debut in the top 20 at #18. Meanwhile, Games With Gold is responsible for the final new entry, as Q.U.B.E. 2 also climbs significantly to debut at #20.

The games that have fallen out of the chart this week are Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Gears of War 4, and Star Wars Battlefront II. None of these titles have fallen far, and all stand a decent chance of making it back into the chart another time.

You may all have noticed a surprising omission, though. Arguably the biggest of last week's new releases, Just Cause 4 is nowhere to be seen. The title only just clipped into the top 50 and will need a much better performance to stand a chance of hitting the top 20.
