Top 10 UK Sales Chart: Quantum Break Debuts at No.1

Dirt Rally puts up strong competition during an otherwise quiet week.


Remedy Entertainment's Quantum Break has become the first Microsoft-published game to reach the top of the UK sales chart since Halo 5: Guardians was released in November 2015.

"We're delighted that Quantum Break has been so well received by fans and critics, it’s a testament to the hard work, ambition and commitment of the team at Remedy that the game is already surpassing expectations," said Jon Edney of Xbox Studios. "The game has already built up a passionate fanbase and we look forward to seeing and hearing about their experiences in Riverport."

According to data supplied by sales monitor Chart-Track, the Xbox One and PC exclusive narrowly beat out competition from Codemasters' Dirt Rally, which made its debut on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

The arrival of these two new games pushed Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's The Division down to third place, ending a four week streak at No.1.

You can see the full top ten for the week ending April 9 below. This list does not include digital sales data, and thus should not be considered representative of all UK game sales.

  1. Quantum Break
  2. Dirt Rally
  3. Tom Clancy's The Division
  4. FIFA 16
  5. Far Cry Primal
  6. Grand Theft Auto 5
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

  9. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege
  10. Star Wars Battlefront

Quantum Break received a score of 6 in GameSpot's review.

"Quantum Break can be an interesting ride at times," said Peter Brown. "But no matter how impressive the combat is, or how great the game looks, there's no getting around the fact that it's driven by a story with limited appeal and hindered by disappointing design decisions."
