Ghost Recon Wildlands Tops UK Sales Charts This Week; Yooka-Laylee Debuts at Number Six

on April 17, 2017 9:20 AM

The 14th week of the 2017 UK Sales Charts are in, and unlike the 13th week, Atlus’ Persona 5 is no longer the chart-topper, but rather for the third time this year Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands has returned to the top spot.

This week marks the 5th time a Ubisoft game has taken the number one spot, with the other two times coming from For Honor. Elsewhere on the charts LEGO Worlds and GTA V both jumped one place to number two and three respectively. Meanwhile, Overwatch and FIFA 17 came in at number four and number five.

New release Yooka-Laylee is the highest new entry, right outside the top 5, at number six. Launching on Tuesday, the spiritual successor to the Banjo-Kazooie series could not replicate the success the original Banjo-Kazooie N64 game had, which spent four weeks at number one in 1998. The only other new title to break in to the Top 40 is the retail collection’s edition release of Stardew Valley from 505 Games, which landed at number 30.

Notably, last week’s top dog Persona 5 slid off the charts completely. It’s also important to note that many outlets had ongoing Easter sales, which had an unknown influence on the chart.

Here’s the full Top 40 for Week 13 2017 (the week ended on April 15th):

It’s important to note this only includes physical sales, and not digital sales.
