[UPDATE] Xbox Gameplay Chart: Week Ending May 26th, 2019

By Rebecca Smith,
Now that we've recovered from our bank holiday excesses, we've now fully analysed all of the shocks and surprises from the Xbox Gameplay Chart this week. After Apex Legends lost its grip on second place in the chart last week and Fortnite being definitively crowned the Battle Royale champion at #1, we get to see if the former title stabilises itself or if its descent continues. Also, how did the new releases fare? You can take a look for yourself in the top 40 most played games in the Gameplay Chart below:

We'll start at the top, where Fortnite unsurprisingly remains in the #1 spot again. Apex Legends fails to recover from last week, instead sliding another place into #4 behind Minecraft in #2 and Rainbow Six Siege in #3. The only other real change in the top 10 was the appearance of Overwatch, which climbs three spots to #10 thanks to the start of the Overwatch Anniversary Event.

There wasn't a lot of movement overall. Now that the initial buzz of the announcement of Ghost Recon Breakpoint has subsided, the previous title in the franchise, Ghost Recon Wildlands, drops five spots to #29. The only game to beat that is Mortal Kombat X, which drops six spots to #34, possibly as more people move on to Mortal Kombat 11. There are no significant climbers at all, although Call of Duty: Black Ops II manages to climb a single spot to sneak back into the top 40 at #40.

The only new title to appear this week is Dauntless, a free-to-play action-RPG that was released on May 21st. Despite Team Sonic Racing being the best selling game in countries like the UK, it failed to come anywhere near the top 40, nor did BetaDwarf's free-to-play collectible card game Minion Masters. We also failed to see any sign of new Xbox Game Pass releases Metal Gear Survive and The Banner Saga.

Can next week be any different? PixARK leaves Game Preview for a full release, while Outer Wilds, a game many received as a Mixpot prize, makes its debut on Xbox Game Pass. Fellow Xbox Game Pass releases include Void Bastards and Dead By Daylight, while the week will conclude with the release of new Xbox Games with Gold. 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.
