Need for Speed Unbound failed to crack the UK's top ten boxed sales chart during its launch week
But The Callisto Protocol made it to sixth on the list.
Friday, December 2 was arguably the last big day of launches in the games industry for 2022. While there are some exciting releases coming in December, that day saw The Callisto Protocol, Need for Speed Unbound, and Marvel's Midnight Suns all dropping at once, and despite this being the case, only one of the games managed to crack the UK's top ten boxed sales charts.
As for Need for Speed Unbound and Marvel's Midnight Suns, the latter made it to 26th on the list (although this could be attributed to the game largely being tailored to PC players), whereas the former only made it to 17th on the list. While this data doesn't take into account digital sales, it should be known that Unbound's release is down 64% when compared to 2019's Need for Speed Heat.
