Ubisoft's looter shooter has topped UK physical sales charts for a second week in a row, leaving behind EA's FIFA 19 and Red Dead Redemption 2. The easter sales and spring promos also reintroduced some older hits back into Top 10.

The Division 2 has been nothing but success for Ubisoft ever since its launch in March 2019. The critically acclaimed looter shooter beat its predecessor in pre-order numbers despite being on Epic Store and it's topping UK physical sales charts for the second week in a row, leaving behind some big names.

The list is, as always, courtesy of UKIE and GfK Chart-Track and according to their data, The Division 2 sold more copies than EA's FIFA 19 in second and Rockstar's western Red Dead Redemption 2 in third place.

You may think that The Division 2's achievement doesn't look that impressive given that the previous week has been relatively quiet for new releases. While that may be the case, the increased Spring promotions and early Easter sales have certainly boosted the sales of some older games that are now available at very low prices. 

As you can see from the list below, a couple of big hits from mid-2018 are still doing great along with the usual suspects like Grand Theft Auto V. Ubisoft's action adventure Assassin's Creed Odyssey is also pretty high on the list, after missing out the TOP 10 last week. Marvel's Spider-man saw the biggest boost in sales, going from 29th place to 10th.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate and The Lego Movie 2 Videogame are the only two titles to drop out from the TOP 10 and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is also slowly dropping after reaching the first spot in its launch week.
