Xbox Gameplay Chart: Week Ending January 13th, 2019

By Rebecca Smith, 1 month ago
Last week the Xbox Gameplay Chart finally got a new title in the top spot. With no major new releases to take the chart by storm, has Fortnite stayed firm in that top spot, or has the pecking order changed again? Let's take a look at the top 40 most played games in the full chart below.

The game in the top spot this week continues to be Fortnite, deservedly so seeing as it increased its player numbers to command a clear lead at the top of the board. Is this because of the continuing 14 Days of Fortnite event or for some other reason? Let us know if you have any thoughts. In the meantime, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 stays steady in #2, while player numbers for Red Dead Redemption 2 continue to decrease, albeit not by enough to drop it out of the top three. This is despite new multiplayer content being introduced last week.

The top 20 all manage to stand their ground with only small movements in either direction, the exception being Celeste, which drops seven places to #18 now that people have finished trying out the new Games With Gold title. Most of the biggest movers and shakers are found in the bottom half of the chart. Halo 5 climbs four spots to #24 thanks to a free weekend, SMITE climbs six spots to #27 thanks to a new patch and weekend event, and For Honor hits the top 40 for the first time since the chart's conception, perhaps thanks to the Assassin's Creed crossover event. The only game to suffer a significant drop is Spyro as it drops seven places to #33.

This week's new entries are likely due to be because of Xbox Game Pass. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 debuts at #25, while Absolver debuts at #31, both of which were introduced into Xbox Game Pass this week. Meanwhile, The Division sees a rise in popularity too, probably because it was announced that the game is due to leave Game Pass by the end of the month and people are clamouring to finish it. The other new Game Pass introductions missed out on a top 40 spot; Just Cause 3 just clips into the top 50, while late introduction Aftercharge is nowhere to be seen.

Next week sees a new Game With Gold in the form of WRC 6, while Xbox Game Pass promises more titles for the rest of the month. There's also notable retail releases in the form of Onimusha: Warlords and Ace Combat 7. Will we see any new entries from those into the chart? Don't forget to tune in to see what next week will bring, and in the meantime, you can subscribe to get alerts for all future Xbox Gameplay Charts here.
