Did it hold on for a second week? Where did some of the biggest new releases land in the chart? Take a look at the top 40 most played games in the full chart below to find out.

Well, Call of Duty didn't survive for a second week. It falls down a spot to #2, while Fortnite climbs above it back to the top spot — possibly boosted by Marshmello's concert. Elsewhere in the top 10, Grand Theft Auto climbs seven spots to #8 thanks to the offer of free in-game currency for logging in over the weekend. Rainbow Six Siege also re-enters the top 10 at #9, possibly thanks to an increased Twitch presence with the Twitch Rivals Rainbow 6 Showdown.

Elsewhere, there are a few big movers and shakers too. Starting from the top, Resident Evil 2 loses its first week novelty value and drops eight places to #14. On the other hand, Realm Royale's popularity continues to grow. That game moves eight places in the opposite direction, climbing to #21. SMITE climbs six spots to #30, possibly thanks to the buzz surrounding the Nintendo Switch beta, while Star Wars Battlefront II goes back down eight places now that players have tried out last week's new content. The biggest fall, though, goes to Dragon Ball FighterZ, which drops 20 spots to #40 now that the free trial has ended. We're unlikely to see that title next week.

The biggest new entry comes in the form of the much-awaited Kingdom Hearts III, which enters at #11. Games With Gold is the reason that Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon enters the chart at #25, while new achievements and the end of the Forzathon events are likely to be the reason for Forza Horizon 3's debut at #36. Meanwhile, new content sees For Honor re-enter the chart at #32. Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: WWII both re-entered the chart as well. While Battlefield 1 may have peeked back in due to a Squad Conquest mode extension and a new patch, neither DICE's title nor Call of Duty: WWII have had significant enough updates to fully explain the return.

With no notable new retail releases, we'll be relying entirely upon new Xbox Game Pass surprises for the chart to be shaken up next week. We know something is due to be announced tomorrow during the Inside Xbox programme. Will we see more titles? 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.
