on January 16, 2017 8:49 AM

It will be the year 2042 and Grand Theft Auto V will still be among the top-selling games of the year. Rockstar’s latest installment in the series just continues to sell by the bucket loads, as evidence by it claiming the top spot on the UK sales chart for the second week of 2017. Climbing from number three to number one, this is the 10th time that GTA V has claimed the number one spot on the All Formats Top 40, with the last time being 23 weeks ago back on week 31 of 2016.

GTA V now joins a band of elite company of 12 (now 13) games that have at least 10 weeks at number on Ukie’s sales chart. Further, it becomes the second Take-Two Interactive title to make this list, with the last one being Grand Theft Auto Vice City, all the way back in 2002/2003, which managed 10 weeks at top itself.

Elsewhere on the chart, Activision’s and Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare fell from number one to number two, and EA’s FIFA 17 fell from number two to number three.

Here’s the full Top 40 for Week 2 2017:
