This is the open world title’s first number 1 position since June 2017.
You would think that the popularity of Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 5 couldn’t be any crazier. However, Chart-Track has revealed in its sales data for the week ending January 13th that the open world title claimed the top spot in sales for the UK.
Though it’s been in the top 10 for a number of weeks since launching in September 2013, this is the first time since June 2017 that Grand Theft Auto 5 has topped the charts in sales. Call of Duty: WW2 is in second place while FIFA 18 is in third place. Assassin’s Creed Origins is at fourth followed by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in fifth place.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is still holding fairly strong at sixth place despite the physical version only being available for Xbox One. Star Wars Battlefront 2 is in seventh followed by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Forza Motorsport 7 and Super Mario Odyssey to round out the top 10.
