This week sees the return of Rockstar and Take 2 to the No.1 spot thanks to Grand Theft Auto V. Even before this week, the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of this game held the record for highest-grossing game in a week (£94m total UK estimate – week 38, 2013) and also the all-time UK revenue record, reached after just 28 weeks to overtake Call of Duty: Black Ops.

The other big launch this week was Ubisoft’s multi-format Far Cry 4. The original Far Cry launched as a PC-only game in 2004 and the series has been growing in sales success with each iteration, with Far Cry 2 launched in 2008 (360/PS3/PC) and Far Cry 3 arriving in 2012 (360/PS3/PC). Far Cry 4 is by far the most successful in terms of week one sales.

Activision’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare drops to No.3 after two weeks at the top, followed at No.4 by non-mover FIFA 15 from EA. There are more big new releases this week with a debut at No.5 for EA’s Dragon Age: Inquisition, selling almost exactly the same in week one as 2011’s Dragon Age II.
