UK Game Charts: Quantum Break Debuts at Number 1
First Microsoft title to debut at number 1 in UK since Halo 5: Guardians.
We were wondering which game would put an end to the reign of Tom Clancy’s The Division in the UK and Remedy Entertainment’s Quantum Break has delivered. It debuted in first place for sales charts across all platforms according to Gfk Chart-Track and is the first Microsoft title to debut in first place for the UK since Halo 5: Guardians.
Xbox Studios’ Jon Edney issued a statement on the same: “We’re delighted that Quantum Break has been so well received by fans and critics, it’s a testament to the hard work, ambition and commitment of the team at Remedy that the game is already surpassing expectations. The game has already built up a passionate fanbase and we look forward to seeing and hearing about their experiences in Riverport.”
Interestingly, Dirt Rally debuted in second place, with Quantum Break only nearly beating it. Tom Clancy’s The Division is in third place after spending four weeks at the top.
The rest of the top ten is as you’d expect – FIFA 16, Far Cry Primal, Grand Theft Auto 5, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, EA Sports UFC 2, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege and Star Wars Battlefront.
