Xbox Gameplay Chart, Week Ending 03 November 19

By Heidi Nicholas,
Modern Warfare and The Outer Worlds continue in the top ten of our Gameplay Chart after their release, with Modern Warfare holding its own at no. 2 and The Outer Worlds climbing up one rung to no. 6. Modern Warfare knocked Minecraft out of the position it had held for over a month, but it seems Minecraft is recovering from the shock as it climbs back up to no. 3. Rainbow Six Siege has dropped two places to no.5, whilst Destiny 2 holds its own at no. 8. Destiny 2's The Festival of the Lost content started last week, bringing the Haunted Forest challenge and themed rewards, so perhaps this is the reason for Destiny 2 holding its place at no. 8. As for Rainbow Six Siege, it's not as clear why the game may have dropped. Its Halloween event is still running, and doesn't end until November 6th, but perhaps players' interest has waned. Further down the list, there's more reshuffling and two re-entries.

Here is the top 40 Xbox Gameplay Chart for the week ending 03 November 2019.

Rocket League drops off the top ten to no. 11, having been replaced by FIFA 20. Rocket League also had a Halloween event. Their Haunted Hallows was themed around Stranger Things, and brought Farmstead to The Upside Down. It's still running, and will do so until November 11th, but perhaps, like Rainbow Six Siege, people's interest is waning after Halloween. Borderlands 3 continues to drop, moving down from no. 12 to no. 13. The week before last it was at no.10, and last week's gameplay chart saw the first time it had fallen out of the top ten since its release. Perhaps players were moving over to the two new releases of Modern Warfare and The Outer Worlds, but, since Borderlands 3 was also one of the most anticipated titles of this year, it'll be interesting to see whether it moves back up again in the next few weeks.

Meanwhile, Overwatch has shot up from no. 17 to no. 14. Its sequel, Overwatch 2, was just announced at BlizzCon, so perhaps the announcement will bring more fans flocking back to the game, and we'll see Overwatch rise further in the next few weeks. Black Ops 4 continues to fall, moving from no.10 to no.15, presumably as Call of Duty fans move over to Modern Warfare. Gears 5 has dropped one more place, from no. 15 to no. 16; like Borderlands 3, it was a hugely anticipated release for this year, and perhaps this movement is only a temporary effect of the other two highly anticipated titles which released a few weeks ago. World War Z has dropped from no. 21 to no. 24, despite the addition of its "Kill it With Fire" update, which was the first for the game's second season. The Win 10 version of The Outer Worlds made its debut last week at no. 32, and has since risen to no. 30. Meanwhile, Secret Neighbor, the Hello Neighbor sequel, has continued to climb in the weeks following its release, moving up from no. 35 to no. 31. Ghost Recon Breakpoint has dropped almost ten places, from no. 25 to no. 34. It received mixed and slightly lukewarm reviews, but perhaps its position will improve when the Project Titan raid arrives in December. Minecraft: Xbox One Edition and Call of Duty: Black Ops III make their re-entrances at no. 36 and no. 39 respectively.

Need for Speed Heat releases next week, with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order following the week after, and so it's possible we may see a lot of movement in our Gameplay Chart over the next month. What do you think? Will Minecraft knock Modern Warfare back down and reclaim its spot at no. 2? Where will Need for Speed Heat rank after its release? Let us know what you think in the comments!

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. 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!
