The Witcher 3 UK console downloads hit 144,000 in May

Almost 150,000 UK console gamers downloaded The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in May, the latest numbers from SuperData revealed.

The UK download chart – which launched last month in Beta and MCV ran exclusively – shows just how successful games are in terms of both individual unit sales and total revenue.

SuperData compiles this information based on data received from payment firms and direct from publishers. It does not include sales of digital PC games.

The data shows that The Witcher 3 was No.1 – boosted by a digital bundle with the Xbox One console – followed by Grand Theft Auto V in terms of revenue or Minecraft in terms of units.
