CHARTS: Street Fighter 6 debuts at No.2 on Steam

Another month, another solid performance for Japanese publishing giant Capcom.

The firm has another Steam top-seller in the newly-released Street Fighter 6, which has debuted in second place following its June 2nd release. Capcom hasn't said how well the title has sold to date, but the firm reckons it'll have lifetime sales of 10 million units.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was the highest-grossing title of the week, once again, ahead of Valve's Steam Deck hardware in third place.

NetEase's mythologically-themed battle royale title Naraka: Bladepoint comes in at No.4, having risen up from 41st place. This is seemingly thanks to the release of a new character and various tweaks in a new update.

Fellow battle royale title PUBG: Battlegrounds hangs steady in fifth place, while Destiny 2 drops from No.2 to sixth place week-on-week. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 rose up third place to No.7, charting ahead of Red Dead Redemption 2, which returns to the Steam Top Ten having previously been 97th the week before. The cowboy romp takes eighth place thanks to a 67 per cent price cut.

The Outlast Trials dropped six places to No.9, while Apex Legends rounds off the Top Ten having dropped three places week-on-week.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending June 6th:

1. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve
2. Street Fighter 6, Capcom
3. Steam Deck, Valve
4. Naraka: Bladepoint, NetEase
5. PUBG: Battlegrounds, Krafton
6. Destiny 2, Bungie
7. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Activision
8. Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar
9. The Outlast Trials, Red Barrels
10. Apex Legends, EA
