UK Sales Chart: Grand Theft Auto V Back in 1st, Devil May Cry Definitive Edition Debuts in 5th

March 16, 2015Written by Jason Dunning


Most likely due to the release of Online Heists last week, Grand Theft Auto V ended the streak of new IPs topping the chart, rising 49% to finish at #1. This marks the 8th week for GTAV in first place, but the record for a game in the series still belongs to Vice City for PlayStation 2, which stayed at the top for 10 weeks.

Elsewhere, the previous #1, Dying Light, fell to 2nd, while new releases DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition and Sniper Elite 3: Ultimate Edition debuted in 5th and 10th, respectively.

Here’s the top 20 selling retail games in the UK for the week ending March 14, 2015, according to GfK Chart-track:

  1. Grand Theft Auto V (up 49%)
  2. Dying Light (down 43%)
  3. FIFA 15 (up 1%)
  4. Minecraft: Xbox Edition (down 1%)
  5. DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition

Do you think there’s any chance Battlefield Hardline won’t finish in 1st place this week?
