Grand Theft Auto V

Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto V came out years ago, and yet people keep buying the game like mad, taking part in the game's tremendous single player campaign, as well as its massive Grand Theft Auto Online world, which gets consistently updated with new activities, vehicles and more. No wonder people still love it.

We say this because, according to the UK sales charts for the week ending January 13th (according to UKIE), GTA V has once again taken the top spot in sales. This is the first time that it's doing so for this year, and the first time it has toppled charts since June 2017.

The game has spent 14 weeks at number one since its launch, which brings it closer to the No. 1 record holder, Who Wants To Be a Millionaire, which reached the number one spot and dominated for 18 weeks. Just a little more time and it should have no trouble clearing this record.

Meanwhile, Call of Duty: WWII sat firmly in second place, followed by FIFA 18 in third, Assassin's Creed Origins in fourth and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in fifth – another game that's seen a great deal of longevity since its release last year.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Star Wars: Battlefront II also saw placement in the top ten, along with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Now it's just a matter of seeing how long GTA V can stay in the top spot – especially with Red Dead Redemption 2 coming sometime over the next few months.

Here's the full top ten!

  • Grand Theft Auto 5
  • Call of Duty: WWII
  • FIFA 18
  • Assassin's Creed Origins
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
  • Star Wars: Battlefront II
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Forza Motorsport 7
  • Super Mario Odyssey

Grand Theft Auto V is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, as well as Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A Nintendo Switch version is rumored to be in the works, but hasn't been confirmed just yet.
