Supermassive Games, known for games such as Until Dawn, recently launched a new game—The Quarry. The Quarry is another horror game with similarities to Until Dawn, though no direct relation. The game received decent reviews, though was not quite able to top the UK boxed charts at launch. As of this past week, The Quarry took a 63% dip in sales according to GamesIndustry.biz, among other changes with some of the best-selling games in recent times.
Top Ten in UK Boxed Charts (June 12-18)
- Horizon Forbidden West
- Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
- Mario Strikers: Battle League Football
- Nintendo Switch Sports
- Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
- Pokémon Legends: Arceus
- The Quarry
- Minecraft (Switch Edition)
- Gran Turismo 7
- FIFA 22
Changes From the Week Prior
Surprisingly, Horizon Forbidden West popped back into the number one slot after coming in third the week before last. Horizon Forbidden West was launched back in February, but it seems its popularity has yet to die down. Similarly, after a launch in April, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has retained its spot as the number two best-selling game in the UK boxed charts.
Unsurprisingly, we are still seeing Mario Kart 8: Deluxe and Minecraft in the top ten where they’ve each made consistent appearances over time. It’s unlikely we will see these evergreen games drop too far until sequels are made, though with consistent sales like these, sequels are questionable in the near future. Mario Strikers: Battle League Football has remained in the top five, though its sales have dropped by 58% since the week prior, now cementing it in third place.
