Deus Ex tops the UK retail chartBut Mankind Divided has fallen short of Human Revolution’s “much stronger” debut weekMatthew HandrahanEditor-in-ChiefTuesday 30th August 2016Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareSquare Enix has taken the number one spot in the UK retail chart with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which unseated F1 2016 despite selling in lower quantities than its predecessor, Human Revolution.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!

There could be numerous reasons for that decline in performance, but it’s worth noting that Mankind Divided hasn’t received quite as much praise from the critics as its predecessor: an average score of 82 at the time of writing, versus an average score of 90.Another factor could be the greater importance of digital sales on both console and PC. At the time of writing, Steam Spy estimated that Mankind Divided had 265,000 owners.Nevertheless, it was enough to secure Deus Ex the top spot, an accolade that three other new entries into the top ten failed to achieve: EA’s Madden NFL 16, which finished the week in fifth place, 505 Games’ Assetto Corsa, which landed in eighth, and Koei Tecmo’s AOT Wings of Freedom, which occupied the final spot.Last WeekThis WeekTitleNew Entry1Deus Ex: Mankind Divided12F1 201623No Man’s Sky44OverwatchNew Entry5Madden NFL 1786Uncharted 437LEGO Star Wars: The Force AwakensNew Entry8Assetto Corsa59Grand Theft Auto VNew Entry10AOT Wings of FreedomCelebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Publishing & Retail newsletter and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.
