Week 2 of 2015 sees a return to No1 for Rockstar/Take 2 and ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-51%).
This is actually only the fifth No1 for ‘GTA V’, which some people may find surprising given its status as fastest-selling game within a 7 day period (launch week 38/2014) and also the fact that this game has sold more units than any other in the UK (achieved in week 47/2014 after the launch of the Gen 8 versions).
Activision’s ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ drops to No2 (-61%) having held on to No1 for a total of 6 weeks since launch. EA’s ‘FIFA 15’ remains No3 (-51%) with an 8 week run at No1 since launch. There are no new releases and the only other notable change is the rise of Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’ from No27 to No11 (-3%) thanks to a spike in sales of the official Assassin’s Creed Kinect Unity/Black Flag Xbox One hardware bundle.
