The latest edition of the military shooter, which places an emphasis on co-op gameplay, has now held the top spot in the UK charts for five separate weeks. The only other game released last year that has managed more is FIFA 16, which has claimed six weeks at number one.

Following on Black Ops 3's heels is Star Wars Battlefront, which since its launch in mid-November has consistently held its place in the top three. The popularity of Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens appears to continue to drive sales of DICE's multiplayer shooter; LucasArts' latest movie is said to have now outsold Jurassic World at the Box Office.
