With Fortnite and Apex Legends still dominating the Xbox Gameplay Chart and no notable retail releases this week, the chart may seem fairly familiar again. Which of the two battle royale titles takes the top spot this week? Did any of the new releases or Game Pass games make an impact on the chart? You can take a look for yourself in the top 40 most played games in the Gameplay Chart below:
The answer to the first question is that Fortnite retains the top spot. The gap between the two titles continues to increase and it's looking less likely that Apex Legends will reclaim the coveted #1 spot. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 does better this week as the free Blackout trial continues, gaining enough players for it to climb to #3. Despite Rainbow Six Siege also increasing its numbers as the Rainbow Is Magic event entered its final week, the game dropped to #4. The rest of the top 10 remains fairly similar to last week with just small shifts in position.

The answer to the second question is that none of the new releases or Xbox Game Pass games made any impact on the chart at all. Neither Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, Dangerous Driving, Prey or The Golf Club 2 came remotely close to the top 40. In fact, we had no new entries at all. We do see some re-entries in the form of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Call of Duty: WWII, and Battlefield 1, who are all hovering around the bottom of the chart, dropping in and out depending on the performance of other titles in the same area.
The only significant climbers this week are Call of Duty: Black Ops III, up eight places to #25, and Mortal Kombat X, which is up nine places to #26. The latter is likely to be because of the building hype around the upcoming release of Mortal Kombat 11. There's every chance that Black Ops III's popularity is for a similar reason, as the buzz around Black Ops 4 increases with the Blackout trial and increases interest in the previous title.
Only two titles drop dignificantly this week too. Star Wars Battlefront II's popularity decreases now that players have already tried out the latest Game with Gold. The game drops ten places to #31, and that's only likely to get worse next week as it is due to be replaced with another title. Finally, Sekiro's popularity decreases after its recent release and the title drops nine places to #37.
Next week we get World War Z, World of Warships: Legends, and Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster, although whether they will trouble the chart remains to be seen. We stand more chance of seeing the new Games with Gold titles (Outcast - Second Contact and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2), or even the two new Xbox Game Pass titles (Monster Hunter: World and The Walking Dead: A New Frontier).
