Bungie’s Destiny 2 has taken over the no.1 spot in the UK charts, trouncing every other game in one fell swoop. Destiny 2 was released on September 6, almost three years after the original game, and has succeeded in dethroning Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which moves down to second place.

Activision Blizzard and Bungie’s online-only shooter launched on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the consoles seeing 58% and 42% of sales, respectively. This is in comparison to the original, which saw sales split almost evenly at 51% on PS3 and 49% on Xbox 360. Interestingly, Destiny 2’s overall launch sales are 60% below the original, but it’s important to note that only physical copies sold are counted in the UK charts.

Microsoft’s Forza Horizon 3 moves up from tenth to third, which is probably due to retailers selling cheap bundles of the Xbox One S console as they make space for the release of the Xbox One X in November. Bethesda has also seen a sales boost for its games with Fallout 4 re-entering the top ten at number five, as do Dishonored 2 and Doom, which come in at eight and nine respectively.

The full top ten for the week ending September 9 looks like this:

  1. Destiny 2
  2. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
  3. Forza Horizon 3
  4. Grand Theft Auto V
  5. Fallout 4
  6. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  7. F1 2017
  8. Dishonored 2
  9. Doom
  10. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
