To no one’s shock, the two best-selling games at UK retail last year were Call of Duty and FIFA.

GfK has revealed the list of top-sellers at UK retail in 2019. Physical sales of games continued to drop in the country, having declined by 19.8% in 2019.

FIFA 20 came in at the very top, with 1.5 million physical copies sold, a drop from FIFA 19’s 1.8 million the year before. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare sold 1.92 million, a decent boost over Black Ops 4’s 1.72 million.

Mario Kart 8: Deluxe landed at number three, selling 465,062 units, a slight increase over its 2018 haul. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order charted well at number four, with a decent 438,465 units sold.

Physical and digital combined generated £3.77 billion in 2019, a 3.4% decline compared to last year. This is the first drop in overall revenue since 2012, itself another end-of-generation year.

  1. FIFA 20 – 1,502,191.
  2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – 1,192,211.
