Electronic Arts recently found herself forced to confirm a massive hacker attack on FIFA 22, which led to theft of many accounts belonging to the video gamers.
However, there are good news for the sports simulator, which comes from Britain in particular. The GSD Data statistical agency has just shared data on software sales – on the digital and retail market – made in the UK in December 2021. In this time frame, FIFA 22 managed to win the first step of the podium, exceeding even the performance recorded for its predecessor FIFA 21.
Below, you will find the complete Top 20:
FIFA 22 (EA) Call of Duty: Vanguard (Activision Blizzard) Grand Theft Auto V (Rockstar Games) F1 2021 (Codemasters) Just Dance 2022 (Ubisoft) Marvel’s
Overall, however, Christmas 2021 experienced a 12% decrease in software sales compared to Christmas 2020. According to GSD Data, the causes are mainly in Call of Duty’s commercial performance: Vanguard – lower than the standard of the shooter series – and in the lower number of outputs. In 2020, for example, a strong input to sales was derived from the release of Cyberpunk 2077 and the drive of successes such as Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla.
