The gift that keeps giving.


Rockstar Games' perennially popular Grand Theft Auto V takes the top spot on the UK sales chart for the week ending January 13. According to sales monitor Chart-Track, this is the first time GTA V has reached No.1 since June 2017.

In total, GTA V has spent 14 weeks at No.1 since its launch, bringing it a little closer to the 18 week all-time all formats No.1 record currently held by Square Enix's Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Chart-Track also states that GTA V has never been out of the top 40 in the UK sales chart.

At No.2 is Call of Duty: WWII, which holds on to the runner-up spot from last week while FIFA 18 drops to No.3. Following it is Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Origins at No.4 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch at No.5.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, currently exclusive to Xbox One on consoles, spends its fifth week at No.6, ahead of EA's Star Wars Battlefront II at No.7. Rounding off the top 10 are The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Forza Motorsport 7, and Super Mario Odyssey at No.8, No.9, and No.10 respectively.
