PlayStation Gameplay Chart: Gran Turismo 7 crashes out as Star Wars fever strikes

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,

While the trials of Gran Turismo 7 continue, FIFA, Fortnite, Elden Ring, Call of Duty, GTA V, Apex Legends, and Destiny find continued success. Meanwhile, thanks to Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Survivor announcement: Star Wars is back.

We didn't expect to see this for a while, but Gran Turismo 7 has crashed hard this week, while Horizon Forbidden West has risen on the wings of the seven. Here is the top 40 PlayStation Gameplay Chart for the week ending June 5th, 2022.

Not that much is actually happening right in the upper echelons, though people must still be chasing those GTA V trophies because it has beaten out Apex Legends to fifth place as it saw a roughly 7% rise in player count.

Just below this, we see Horizon Forbidden West hitting eighth, up from tenth last week. What's happened here is a massive 28.3% increase in players since last week thanks to the State of Play announcement that Forbidden West was getting a huge patch with three trophies. This means it has lapped Gran Turismo 7 which has dropped to 11th, the first time it has been out of the top ten yet. In the process, the game has had a 10.3% decrease in total players since last week. Though it should be noted, that the racer maintains a more than 2:1 ratio of PS5 to PS4 players and all of the players lost this week were on PS4. It seems players really didn't like the latest stupid update[.

We don't often mention it, but Fall Guys is back at 14th after having a relaunch with a new app and then struggling to find a place on the list. It has found 14th this week, which is a really good metric for how popular this game is: it literally reset its own player count and is still succeeding. Likewise, Genshin Impact rising two places to tenth is worth acknowledging, especially with a roughly 10% player count increase week-on-week. A big winner last week, Roller Champions, has struggled this week as predicted, sliding two places to 22nd. If it can't retain its players, this will be a really sad sign for Ubisoft's upcoming slate of live-service games.

There is a string of reentries and resurging stars to deal with as well. While Marvel's Spider-Man gets 28th, it's actually the beginning of the Star Wars train here with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in 29th and Star Wars: Battlefront II in 36th. This is a good indication of how a simple game announcement can drum up hype and cause an imbalance in force on the chart as other games in the series or franchise get boosted. Let's throw Far Cry 6 into this mix as well, then. It has found a home at 34th as it reenters from the doldrums. Warframe also rentered at 39th.

What a week! Did you notice anything in particular? Let us know in the comments below; we are always awaiting a question or two!
