Xbox Gameplay Chart, Week Ending 27 October 19

By Heidi Nicholas,
There's movement in the top ten of our chart for the first time in weeks, as The Outer Worlds and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare arrive to change up the ranks. Modern Warfare may have just released last Friday, but it's already taken the no. 2 spot, knocking Minecraft from the position it's comfortably held for well over a month.

Here is the top 40 Xbox Gameplay Chart for the week ending 27 October 2019.

Rainbow Six Siege has moved up the ranks after Modern Warfare, rising two places to settle at no. 3. Apex Legends has dropped a few places, from no. 3 to no. 6, and just below it, The Outer Worlds makes its debut in the chart at no. 7. Rocket League holds its own at no. 9, whilst Black Ops 4 moves down to no. 10 to make room for Modern Warfare higher up.

The two new arrivals have knocked Borderlands 3 out of the top ten for the first time since its release. Borderlands 3 hasn't fallen far, however, and now rests at no. 12. Gears 5 has also dropped a few places, from no. 11 to no. 15, and perhaps both of these drops are just a result of players switching over to the two new titles just released. ARK: Survival Evolved has risen a few places from no. 24 to no. 22, perhaps because of its Halloween update: Fear Evolved 3. The Dodorex and DodoWyvern make a return to this third instalment of Fear Evolved, along with a complete Halloween overhaul of the game's environment. Gears 5's own Halloween event, The Pumpkin Ball, is also underway at the moment. It runs until November 5th, and so perhaps next week may change Gears 5's place on the chart.

The Win 10 version of The Outer Worlds shows up in the 32nd spot, and Secret Neighbor appears in the charts for the first time at no. 35, following its release last week. Stealth game Secret Neighbor is a sequel to Hello Neighbor, about kids trying to rescue their friend who's trapped in the neighbor's basement. It just so happens, however, that the neighbor is disguised as one of these kids. Jump Force has fallen pretty drastically from no. 31 to no. 39. It arrived onto Game Pass well over a month ago, so perhaps its players are now moving on to something else.

We wondered last week how The Outer Worlds and Modern Warfare would impact the chart this week, and whether either would topple the top two. Fortnite remains immovable, but Modern Warfare has managed to squeeze Minecraft out of the second spot. Modern Warfare and The Outer Worlds only released last Friday, and both are on the nominees for Golden Joysticks Ultimate Game of the Year award, so it'll be interesting to see where they land next week. Meanwhile, Afterparty and the Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King are releasing this week, so it's possible we'll see some more movement next week from these. Moving into November, there's big releases such as Need for Speed Heat and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to look forward to, so our chart could possibly look completely different by the end of the year.

What do you think? Will Modern Warfare and The Outer Worlds continue to climb? Will Borderlands 3 make it back into the top ten? Let us know in the comments!

I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
