Ghost Recon Wildlands remains at No.1

It’s two weeks on the trot at the top of the UK Top 40 for Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

Following the two No.1’s claimed by For Honor, that means Ubisoft has to date in 2017 claimed more UK No.1’s than any other publisher. Wildlands retains the top spot despite a 73 per cent drop in sales.

With only a 34 per cent week-on-week sales decline, Warner Bros’ LEGO Worlds stays put at No.2, while Sony’s Horizon Zero Dawn only slips one place, claiming third. The rest of the Top Ten has a very familiar look, with static sales of Grand Theft Auto V and FIFA 17 seeing those titles claim fourth and fifth.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sees its sales fall by 72 per cent (after a 70 per cent fall the week before), leaving Nintendo’s title in sixth. It now stands at the only Switch game in the Top Ten, with 1-2 Switch slipping out of the higher echelons of the charts in its third weeks, finishing at 17th.

Nier Automata also drops of the Top Ten, slipping to No.14 after a 73 per cent drop in sales. The week’s only new entry, Styx: Shards of Darkness, can be found down in 37th place.

Here’s the UK Top Ten for the week ending Match 18th:

  1. Ghost Recon: Wildlands (Ubisoft)
  2. LEGO Worlds (Warner Bros)
  3. Horizon Zero Dawn (Sony)
  4. Grand Theft Auto V (Rockstar)
