Grand Theft Auto V Steals Crown

08/Aug/2016

‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (+31%) returns to the top of the All Formats chart for the first time since March 2015.


Having been on chart over 150 weeks it’s the 9th No1 crown for the Take2 title. It’s a close run fight for top spot this week with ‘Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’ (+19%) making a late surge for the crown although it remains at No2 by just a handful of sales. GTA V’s return to the top ends the 5 week run of ‘Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens’(-21%), which had been set to break the record for chart topping Lego titles but instead drops to No3. ‘Overwatch’ (+13%) moves up a place to No4 while outside the Top 10 ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division’ (+34%) climbs ten places to No11.

It’s another quiet week with No Man’s Sky not scheduled to arrive until Wed. However elsewhere in the Top 40 some notable climbers come in the form of ‘EA Sports UFC 2’ (+26%) and ‘Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege’ (+26%). Both titles continue their week on week climbs up to No15 and No16 respectively.
