Dying Light still No.1, GTA V back in second place

Warner Bros and Techland’s open world zombie title Dying Light once again takes pole position in the GfK Chart-Track Top 40.

It keeps the top spot in spite of a 48 per cent decline in sales this week.

The game has so far managed to outpace the other new IPs that launched this year, including Sony’s The Order 1886 and 2K’s Evolve, in spite of launching digital over a month ago.

The Order fell three places to No.7, with a 62 per cent dip in sales, while Evolve falls to No.9 in its fourth week on sale with a 35 per cent sales decline.

The rest of the Top Five are mostly familiar names. Grand Theft Auto V charts in second place, up from fifth last week. Sales of the game fell a mere ten per cent week-on-week.

Meanwhile FIFA 15 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare fill out third and fourth places.

And Bandai Namco’s Dragon Ball: Xenoverse – which debuted in third place last week – falls to fifth with a 61 per cent drop in sales.

In eighth place is Rebellion’s first self-published title, Zombie Army Trilogy. The boxed release was handled by Sold Out.

Here is the Top Ten for the week ending March 7th:

1. Dying Light, Warner Bros
2. Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar
3. FIFA 15, EA
4. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Activision Blizzard
5. Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, Bandai Namco
6. Minecraft: Xbox Edition, Microsoft
7. The Order 1886, Sony
8. Zombie Army Trilogy, Rebellion
9. Evolve, 2K Games
