UK Gaming Charts: Project CARS Leads the Way Once Again

Slightly Mad’s Project CARS holds onto the lead for a second week

This week is a pretty big deal for Bandai Namco as Project CARS remains in first place for a second week running. The reason this is such a big deal is because, according to Chart-Track, the last Bandai Namco title to remain in the top spot for two consecutive weeks was Ridge Racer Type 4, which launched over 16 years ago. Blimey.

Project CARS faced stiff competition too with the release of the standalone prequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, which launched last week for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Old Blood did pretty well for itself physically too despite the digital version launching on May 5. Out of all the sales of The Old Blood, the PlayStation 4 version did much better grabbing 67 per cent of the share, compared to the Xbox One’s 27 per cent.

In third place is Grand Theft Auto V, dropping a place this week, but it doesn’t matter really, as the game has broken records for Take 2 and Rockstar as the game has passed the 5 million sales milestone here in the UK.

Mortal Kombat X falls to number 4 ahead of a second new release, or should we say a new re-release, as Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster lands in fifth place. FIFA 15 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare follow in sixth and seventh place, respectively.

This week sees the launch of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.. So you can never guess who’ll be number one next week, though it’ll still be good news for Bandai Namco.

Here’s the full run down:

  1. Project CARS
  2. Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
  3. Grand Theft Auto V
  4. Mortal Kombat X
  5. Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster
  6. FIFA 15
  7. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
  8. Dying Light
  9. Destiny
  10. Battlefield Hardline
