Xbox Gameplay Chart: Tekken 7's Game Pass debut boosts it into the Top 40

By Sam Quirke,
Amid all of the #MyDecadeOnXbox excitement, we didn't want to forget about our other big stats roundup – our exclusive weekly chart showing exactly what Xbox players are actually playing, rather than just what the high street retailers are selling. Here's this week's Top 40 Xbox Gameplay Chart for the week ending 19 January 2020, where Call of Duty and GTA V still hang on to a lead above Fortnite, despite the latter's domination of the chart for almost all of 2019.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's season-based content delivery is clearly working for it – it's unlikely to be a coincidence that Activision and Infinity Ward chose to extend Season One while the game is riding high on player count. Despite the hype caused by Fortnite's launch of Season Two, it appears that interest is starting to flag on the groundbreaking battle royale game, at least on Xbox.

It's a week in which the impact of Xbox Game Pass cannot be overstated – GTA V has kept itself in the top 3 despite no significant content updates since the opening of the Casino last year, and this will surely be down to the fact that it was a surprise addition to Xbox Game Pass for console right at the start of 2020. The impact can be seen in the return of Tekken 7 to the charts too – the fighting game is generally well regarded and has the added benefit of being relatively easy to complete for the achievement hunters out there and so is a welcome addition to Xbox Game Pass in January

In a slow month for releases, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot didn't have much trouble reaching into the Top 40 either, though as a relatively niche anime action-RPG, we wonder how long it will remain. Mind you, with seemingly every major game suddenly fleeing from their Q1/Q2 release slots, maybe the more left-field titles that decide to stick out the dry spell will continue to get some traction in the chart in the coming weeks.

Have you been enjoying COD's season content? Did you grab Tekken 7 from Game Pass, or the recently fixed Batman: A Telltale Series from Games with Gold? Let us know!
