UK Sales Chart: Dying Light Delay Doesn’t Dampen Debut, Places in 1st

March 2, 2015Written by Jason Dunning


Not even a month-long delay could slow down Dying Light at retail, as it debuted in first place in the UK last week, marking the third consecutive new IP to finish at #1 in the last three weeks after The Order: 1886 and Evolve.

In terms of other new releases, Dragon Ball Xenoverse placed in third, and its strong sales have given it the best week 1 in the UK ever for a Dragon Ball title. Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires, meanwhile, finished outside the top 20 in 21st.
