Fortnite has been sat in the top spot of the Xbox Gameplay Chart for the last couple of weeks. We now have this week's chart to show you and it's time to see if anything has managed to unseat it. Let's take a look at the top 40 most played games in the full chart below.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 had a large increase in gamers this week due to the free Blackout trial that's running right now. Despite that large effort, though, it wasn't enough to move it out of the #2 spot, and Fortnite remains in the #1 spot for a third week. In fact, the majority of the top 20 remain the same with only tiny movements in either direction. The exception to that is Halo: The Master Chief Collection that moves up five spots to #15, possibly thanks to the recent update and ongoing event to earn a limited edition nameplate.
There are some other big movers and shakers — we'll start with the shakers. Celeste continues to fall down the charts, dropping another seven places into #25, likely due to it leaving Games With Gold. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 drops 13 places to #38 now that players have moved on to the latest Game Pass additions. Meanwhile, Monster Hunter World and Call of Duty: WWII also both drop five places to #39 and #40 respectively through no fault of their own; despite similar player numbers to last week, other games just had a stronger showing this week.
There were some big movers too. Tom Clancy's The Division climbs six spots this week to #31, likely buoyed by the recent in-game event that saw the return of Strike. Meanwhile, The Elder Scrolls Online also climbs six spots to #34 as their Midyear Mayhem event continues. Excitement for the game likely also increased with last week's announcement of the "Elsweyr" expansion. Finally, Far Cry 5 climbs several spots to re-enter the chart at #37. Is this because of players getting reacquainted with the game before the impending release of Far Cry New Dawn, or is it because of the newest Game With Gold?
Speaking of that Game With Gold, Far Cry 2 becomes the first Xbox 360 game to make the chart since its conception. It enters at #32, while its Xbox One counterpart WRC 6 enters at #22. The other new entry is from last week's new Xbox Game Pass release We Happy Few, which hits the chart at #27. Fellow new release The LEGO Movie Videogame fails to come anywhere near the chart. For that matter, neither did any of the week's brand new releases, such as Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown or Onimusha: Warlords.
Next week sees two new Xbox Game Pass releases in the form of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Saints Row: The Third. There's also a prominent retail release creeping up on players — Resident Evil 2. Will we see any of these titles in the chart next week? Can anything unseat Fortnite?
