Animal Crossing New Horizons is the new leader of the British ranking: the game sold more copies of all the other games in the series at the launch in the UK, placing 3.5 times more units than Animal Crossing New Leaf sold in 2013.
The numbers in question do not include digital downloads, potentially very high due to the Coronavirus emergency which prevents British citizens from leaving home unless for strictly necessary reasons. DOOM Eternal debuts on the second post followed by Call of Duty Modern Warfare.
