Grand Theft Auto 5 meanwhile spends its 225th consecutive week in the top 40.
The last few months have been very interesting for game sales in the UK. As per Chart-Track, Call of Duty: WW2 spent nine straight weeks on top, equaling the record set by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It was on its way to beating it but unfortunately, FIFA 18 has unseated it as the top-selling game at UK physical retail.
Call of Duty: WW2 is still in second place so it’s not all bad news. Meanwhile, Grand Theft Auto 5 has set its own record at third place, having been in the top 40 charts for 225 weeks straight. If that weren’t enough, 85 percent of its time has been spent in the top 10.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is in fourth place followed by Star Wars Battlefront 2, The Sims 4 and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in fifth, sixth and seventh respectively. PUBG’s re-entry into the top 10 is via the physical Xbox One version and despite launch issues, it still managed to place seventh. The rest of the charts consist of Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Forza Motorsport 7.
