Well, it seems Call of Duty has done it again, with Infinite Warfare taking the top spot as best selling UK game in Christmas week. Is Call of Duty king again, or could this just be a final moment of glory for the controversial franchise?

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the 7th title in the franchise to take the best selling spot on the UK Sales chart in Christmas Week. Whilst the series has seen insane success in the past, many sales reports prior to now have reported disappointing sales, with physical sales down by almost 50%. With this in mind, many may wonder how the game managed to top the UK Christmas sales charts over games such as Watch Dogs 2 and Battlefield 1. 

Well, as much as disliking Call of Duty is quite the popular thing today, for good reason in part, lots of people do actually really enjoy the current format. Whilst many people will complain about super-soldiers flying around with jetpacks, some people absolutely love this, so the title is always going to be popular with them. Another possibility of how it managed to take the Christmas top spot is because of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered title bundled with the Legacy edition of the game. Many UK vendors are selling the Legacy edition of Infinite Warfare for a reduced price at the moment, meaning that those who really didn't want to spend £65 – £70 just to get the remaster can now make a saving of around £15 – £20.

Whatever the reasons, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has managed to top the Christmas UK Sales Charts, beating out some of the best recently AAA title releases and securing the Call of Duty franchise another Christmas king.
