A lack of major releases in January means last year’s games continue to sell well.
Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 5 is holding strong in the UK according to the latest sales charts courtesy of Gfk Chart-Track. This was followed by FIFA 15 which superseded Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for second place.
Meanwhile, Far Cry 4 stood at fourth place. Minecraft: Xbox Edition went up to fifth place followed by massively multiplayer online racing title The Crew and Minecraft: PlayStation Edition. Assassin’s Creed: Unity, Destiny and LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham made up the remaining top ten.
Sales were down for all titles though and the only new release of 2015 – Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – is at 38th place in the charts. There is a chance that titles like Dying Light, Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell and Resident Evil HD could shake things up but for now, last year’s best-sellers continue their reign.
