FIFA 22 is the UK’s Christmas number one, beating competition such as Call of Duty: Vanguard to the top spot. EA now has more Christmas Number one’s than any other publisher. Data collected by Gfk lists the best-selling boxed games. Digital sales are not included, which could tell a different story entirely.
